Some of us are extroverts and some of us are introverts!  For those of us who have gone through the Myers Briggs Type Indicator, we know where we fall on that scale.
We also know that we can have at our base one trait and yet act the opposite in public.  There are basic needs that apply to extroverts and introverts alike, the need to feel appreciated and needed.  This is hopefully communicated to each of you at our Rotary meetings. 
The quote attributed to Woody Allen is, “80% of life is just showing up.”  We all find reasons not to show up, but it is showing up that fills our cup, it energizes us.  I find that Rotary does this for me. 
Daily we need to get energized or just go to a place where we feel safe and useful.  We all need to find that place where we go to be accepted and welcomed.  A place where we can leave the worries of work and life behind for an hour.  Rotary is not the panacea for all our frets and concerns, but it does give us time to interact with friends and think about helping others. 
Rotary is no different than any other organization in that you get out of it what you put into it.  This is not to say you need to be involved in every project or serve on every committee, but as Woody says “80% of life is just showing up….
Every introvert or extrovert that is a member of our Club is appreciated and necessary.
