In response to my appeal for more stories from our members, President Greg sent me an amusing story about Rotary Fellowship in a sudden situation of distress. At our latest district meeting, he found himself trapped in the elevator with other fellow Rotarians. Greg’s story starts as follows:
There was a crowd waiting for the elevator of the East Broadway office building. When a car came, we crowded on. We were thirteen in an elevator designated for eight. The doors closed and the car began to move. From the back of the elevator came a small voice “I hope we don’t get stuck”. Then, bingo, the car stopped dead between floors. Thirteen Rotarians, trapped in the elevator.
You can read Greg’s whole story on our website at www.nyrotary.org/president_greg/president's_page.html. You can also find Greg’s previous contributions at www.nyrotary.org/president_greg/trapped.htm.
