ROTARY LIFE AFTER BEING AG

Some people look forward to retirement. They envision spending more time engaging in their hobbies. Some have wonderful images of traveling to exciting places where they have never been before. And there are those whose dreams are to relax more and spend time with their children and/or grandchildren. And, of course, there are many who don’t have specific plans and choose to see what life brings to them. Whatever your plans are, good luck with pursuing them.

As for me, my idea of retiring as an Assistant Governor was bittersweet. My three years were not as I expected. Unfortunately, the first two years were “COVID” years, and the restrictions of addressing people face to face put a damper on my expectations. Although I would not describe myself as a “huggy/feely” person, I do prefer physical contact over Zoom.

So here we are three years after signing on as an AG, and it’s over. What now, I ask? Having been a Rotarian for almost 40 years, I can’t see myself retiring from Rotary, just retiring as an AG. I will continue to maintain my membership and participation with my home club. But the question is, what should I do, if anything, at the district level? The district is always looking for qualified volunteers in many areas and levels of service. I ask myself, which of these areas of service best suits my skills and desires? I’ll touch base with the leaders of our great district to discuss options and needs. One thing I know for sure, I am not ready to stop being an active Rotarian. So, if you find yourself in the same place as I am, remember that “Service above Self” is calling you.
