What kind of a person joins the Rotary Club these days? The club motto is Service above Self and someone coming in will embrace that philosophy.  

Long gone are the days of the old boys club. Men and women, young and old are members now.

Recently Melissa Askari, Judy Demoney, Mickie Hill, Eric LeJeune, Chris Neal and John Fink have been inducted and joined the Red Badge program.  While in this program they will meet members, join teams, learn about Rotary and earn their coveted blue badges.

Being a Rotarian means participation and work.  Members not only work on the two fund-raisers, the Cow Creek Country Classic Bike Ride and the Flag Subscription Program, but also on many outreach projects.  These might include building wheelchair ramps, passing out books at Operation 1st Day of School or a variety of other projects.

Being part of the Rotary Club of Waxahachie is especially rewarding because of the effectiveness or the programs.  

This year the club was recognized as best in the district in local and international service.  

In addition, the club received an international award for making changes in the community.

What kind of person joins?  Someone who wants to work hard to make our community, nation and world better.  Someone who places Service above Self.
