What motivates everyday women to do extraordinary things? Three Rotary members answered that question at a celebration of International Women’s Day hosted by the World Bank at its Washington, D.C., headquarters on 8 March.
Ed Coulter will host David Hale, former NFL player as our program speaker this week.
Ed shares the following about Mr. Hale: Dave graduated from Ottawa University in 1969 with a BA Chemistry. In 1969 he was a 12th round draft pick for the Chicago Bears. He played defensive tackle and was on special teams. He played with Dick Butkus, Gayle Sayers and Bobby Douglas, to name a few. He played against and chased the likes of OJ Simpson and many others during the early 70’s. He’s told me that he couldn’t catch OJ either. David was Army Airborne qualified. He started the Hale Agency in 1985 marketing annuities for IRAs and 401K rollovers. He is married to Nori with 5 children and loves to be a grandfather to his 13 grandchildren.
David is a poet, a musician, devout Christian and a Gideon. He loves to jog, play the piano, sings a mean bass and teaches Sunday school. He is quite the entertainer with his poetry, his piano playing and telling stories about his years with the NFL.
