Mystery Rotarian ~ from Cathy Wilcox-Barnes, Club Services
Mystery Rotarian is back! Because last week was rained out, we will solve this one on Thursday! Follow the clues to see if you can figure out who it is. The Mystery Rotarian will help you become better acquainted with your fellow Rotary Members.
No one has ventured a guess yet! This week you might be really stumped. The first person to reveal the Mystery Rotarian to President Robin, (before the answer appears) wins a free raffle ticket. Keep following the Mystery Rotarian and find out more about the people you with whom you spend your Thursdays. Ask questions as you converse each week. As we get to know hidden sides of our members we should get to know each other better.
This week's Mystery Rotarian:
This Rotarian was a foot model in New York.
This Rotarian worked as a Junior Ad Executive for Sacks & Rosen advertising company in New York.
This Rotarian sang at the Cal Neva Lodge lounge for a summer.
This Rotarian started a Hip Hop class for students at risk.
This Rotarian was sponsored by someone with the last initial “R”.
