BETHESDA CHEVY CHASE ROTARY MEMBER TESTIMONIALS
"I joined the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Rotary Club as a way to get involved in my local community. Not only has my club provided excellent opportunities in service to the community, but I’ve had the added bonus of meeting outstanding people, making new friends and learning so much about local and world events from our weekly speakers."
Diane K Yochelson, M.A.
Business Coach and Mentor
"My horizons have been truly broadened through Rotary’s international service programs. It has been a pleasure to work with BCC Rotary Club on providing support to projects that have assisted in providing education and vocational training to people in the Caribbean, in helping to eradicate the Ebola virus in Africa and to providing safe water systems in developing countries. And through Rotary’s international youth exchange programs, our family has experienced new cultures and found close friends that have continued over the years."
International Lane Director, 2014-15
"Over the course of a Foreign Service career spanning more than three decades, I have always been motivated in my work by several elements: service to the U.S Government, outreach in widening my circle of contacts and friends and engagement with the community for improvements. Even after my retirement and work with the Migration and Refugee Services of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops from 2007-2014, I was able to continue work with these guiding principles in mind. My membership in Rotary overseas and here in the U.S. helps to reinforce these key elements of my work and service ethic. B-CC Rotary has been especially good for me in this regard. I’m so please that I opted for this club and no other when I returned to the U.S. in 2004."

"As a young professional, new to the D.C. metropolitan area, I was excited to join Rotary for fellowship, community service, and business and social networking. The diverse group of members provide a wealth of knowledge and experience that is invaluable and their dedication and passion to serve the community and the world is inspiring."
