John T. Capps is our speaker at the Friday, March 6, dinner.
John T. became a “Rotarian” when a Rotary Youth Leadership Award Delegate asked, “Will you teach me how to tie a tie?” And again several years later after ten trips to south India for Polio Immunization and Polio Hospital visits. Anand, with arms and legs about the size of one’s index and forefinger, would greet us with his penetrating eyes, arms outstretched to be touched, smiling and saying, “I knew you would Uncle John, thank you for returning to our Polio Hospital.”
“We take ourselves too seriously,” says John T. “Participating and sharing the humanitarian programs and projects of our clubs provide us some humor in order not to weep. I am not a great Rotarian; I just toil daily in the cornfields of life to bring thoughtfulness, a few laughs and sometimes tears of joy by serving others.”
