Involved in the Community:
Rotary Club of Durham.
A big part of being connected to downtown, is participating in civic organizations like The Downtown Durham Rotary Club, where I enjoyed working alongside other business leaders. The Club was organized in November 1915 as the first civic club in Durham; became the first chartered Rotary Club in Durham in January 1916 with sponsorship from the Rotary Club of Raleigh; and was the fourth chartered club in North Carolina, following Raleigh, Charlotte and Asheville. It has subsequently sponsored and helped organize three of the 4 other clubs in the Durham/RTP area. The downtown club meets each Monday at 12:30 pm at the downtown Durham Marriot at the Civic Center.
