At its lunch meeting next Tuesday, August 9, 12:15 at Calogero’s Italian Restaurant at 919 Franklin Avenue, Garden City, Mineola-Garden City Rotary members and guests will hear fellow Rotarian Frank Morrone describe his extensive Journey through Rotary. He will tell Rotary members and guests what he has learned about life, business and how to guide Rotarians to serve their communities in the best Rotary tradition of “Service Above Self,”
Club members are reminded that Rotary was formed 117 years ago in 1905 by businessman Paul Harris who also created Rotary International. The world’s largest service organization, Rotary is made up of three parts: our clubs, Rotary International and the Rotary Foundation. Together, Rotary works to make lasting change in our communities and around the world.
There are approximately 35,000 local Rotary Clubs with over 1.2 million members throughout the world – all pursuing service projects and programs to benefit their communities and beyond. The clubs also provide for the Foundation and support the global service endeavors of Rotary International.
Frank Morrone is highly active in Rotary International. Remarkably, he has served as president of four Rotary Clubs and currently serves as chairman of the Mineola-Garden City Club Administration Committee.
A life-long entrepreneur, Frank started and managed more than ten companies during his 30-year business career. He started his first company while still in college, pursuing his business administration degree. Frank retired from active business management in his mid-40s. Migrating to the United States as a young boy with his parents and siblings, he says he is proud to be an American citizen by choice.
Thankful for the opportunities America has provided, Frank continues to contribute his time and resources to preserving and improving the quality of life for our generation, and for that of our children and grandchildren.
To reserve for the lunch meeting next Tuesday, August 9 (fee, $35 for a great Calogero’s lunch of choice), please email Club President Meg Morgan Norris at email@example.com.
