Service Above Self
     Community Service is an important concept which attracts many to Rotary. The idea that working both singly and in groups to selflessly help others in need without thought of recompense is a powerful driver behind many great projects.
     I suggest that there are two general types of Community Service.
     First is the "one time pau" in a given Rotary year. Examples of this would be the Rice Rally and Salvation Army bell ringing
     Second would be continuing throughout the year on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. Examples of this would be helping to feed the homeless several times a month, something that the Rotary Club of Hilo currently does.
     Both are great in that they allow for flexibility in Rotarian time schedules. I'm hoping for a good club discussion about this soon - DCH
