Our Weekly Meeting


Member’s Vocational Exchange

The focus of our weekly meeting programming this month will be personalized by Rotarians sharing their stories about their vocations in varied fashions. 

In honor of our last Vocation Month presentation, our primary program consisted of a duel presentation between Marc Mazella + Stephen DiPaolo. The two had shared a  Zoom the week before and learn a lot about each other. During their mutual interviews, these YSU alumni learned about how they got to their current position, what brought them to Rotary membership and compared notes about their proud Italian Heritage.
