As is traditional this year for the fifth Wednesday of the month, Jim Freeman used the words of inspiration time to inspire us with a piece of Rotary history. He reminded us that Paul Harris founded the club 111 years ago when he was 37. Our Washington club is 104 years old. It was 25 years ago when President George H.W. Bush and the RI president met and spoke of reforestation efforts. President Bush established “Trees for the Capital” and placed the Park Service in charge, with Rotary becoming a partner. In 1932 Harris visited five continents and planted trees as a symbol of international cooperation. Perhaps now our club’s Trees for the Capital effort should become Trees for the Capitals around the world.
