Rotarian Moments with John Flohr

Share

A few years ago, Patti Willis, the then president of the Rotary Club of Easton, described an experience that she predicted all her other Rotarian members would have, if they hadn’t already, which she labeled a “Rotarian Moment.”

This is when a Rotary member first recognizes the unique gift that comes with giving, or more precisely, when the act of their volunteerism, the primary goal of Rotary’s mission, produces a sense of contribution to one’s community never felt before. The Spy thought it would be beneficial to have members share these moments for the general public to understand more clearly the critical role the Rotary plays in the life of Easton and Talbot County.

We continue our series with pharmaceuticals executive John Flohr. While there is a family tradition with the Easton Rotary, the first to particulate was John’s son, Ron, who recently served as president of the club. As John says in his interview with the Spy, as someone whose business was almost entirely done outside of Talbot County, it took him some time to realize that the value of his membership has been so much greater than he ever imagined. Since that time, he’s provided the leadership of the organization’s annual golf tournament, and predicts he may once again follow his son’s example and become president himself in a few years.
