Why I want to join Rotary

I retired in 2013, moved to Marbella and became permanent resident of Spain the same year. Although I enjoy the perfect climate and beautiful surroundings, I have a need to become involved in something useful, ie. give something back to society.

When invited to a Rotary International meeting by two Norwegian Rotarians, I found that maybe I could put my work experience to good use in some capacity in the organization.
