At a recent club meeting, members and guests were treated to one Rotaracter's journey. Matt Gerber, Rotary District 5950's Rotaract chair, talked about his initial experience with Rotary when he went to Australia as a Rotary Youth Exchange student.  After two years he was immersed into Rotary while attending club meetings in Australia and back home in La Grande, Oregon.  After that, Matt felt there was a hole.  After attending RYLA, he decided he needed to start a Rotaract Club.     

Matt states, "Turn on your  radar.  Look for 20-35 year olds who don't fit in."  And when you find such a fine young person, seek Matt out and he can help place them.
