We were honored to have as our speaker, Sylvia Whitlock, the first woman president in Rotary. Sylvia entertained and amazed us with facts and personal anecdotes while sharing a fascinating glimpse into the journey to allow women in Rotary. She detailed the circumstances of the case as women struggled to attain equal rights, her role in the

process, conversations with participants and onlookers, and the benefits she has gained personally through her own membership.

“I am proud to be a member of Rotary. I have met several International Presidents and had the chance to talk with them about our club. I do not know of a better vehicle through which to serve mankind.”
