3 EASY STEPS TO JOIN PEOPLE OF ACTION
What Rotary Can Do For You?
Without an official organization that created projects, it was a lot more difficult to find opportunities to serve. After I joined, I noticed a change in my personality; I was more willing to help others! Leading the club’s international shoe drive got me really involved...
I wanted to find a way to give back to my community. By not having a way to give back, I felt like I wasn’t doing enough. Rotary offers me many different ways to help and contribute to my community, such as feeding the homeless and offering scholarships.
Before joining Plano West Rotary Club I was overworked because I didn’t have enough help in serving our community. I felt drained, very tired, yet determined. After joining the club, we were joined by so many others with a servant heart. With so many volunteers...
I joined Plano West Rotary Club because my son was involved in Interact and I enjoyed being around positive people. The people in the club are excited and pumped up! If service is in your nature, in your blood, and you do not know where to start, go for Rotary...
The Plano West Rotary club helped me find time in my busy schedule to give back to my community. The club has provided me with so many leadership and personal development opportunities which have really benefited me as a young adult.
I joined Rotary after being invited to a few meetings. I enjoy the fellowship and how overtime you connect with everyone. Rotary has the chance to touch more people. Teachers have an important, but hard, job and I enjoy supporting them. If you like the idea of service, give Rotary a try.
Rotary is a huge resource and the sky's the limit. The minute you decide you have a passion area that you really want to work on, you have a lot of resources at your fingertips and like-minded people that will help you make it happen. People might hear about mandatory attendance, but our club does not focus on that.

It was always a challenge finding funding for events and securing donations. Encountering these challenges inspired me to join Rotary, where I could have much stronger financial backing for service around the community.

Rotary lets you take something you are passionate about and run with it. Not only will they let you run with it, but they will help you financially, and help you connect with other clubs in the district for help. This allows you to affect the community in a way you couldn’t before.
Before joining Rotary, I did not know where to go to find reputable opportunities to provide service. I see a lot of needs for the senior population, but I did not have the exposure to other needs. Rotary allows me to diversify and see more of what the other community needs ...
Before I joined the Plano West Rotary club, I had served through church and on high school boards but lacked some of the contacts and knowledge that I gained through Rotary. 
With my children's activities and school, finding the time and availability to serve was a challenge, so I had been volunteering with the Plano West Rotary Club for over a year before I joined. It is enjoyable to serve with like-minded people who want to help the world ...
