A Man's Reach -- A Transforming Life, 61: Rotary

Rotary Letter, on the 60th anniversary of Elmer as a member, 2001

"In 1941, after I took control of H. B. Fuller Company, Harvey Fuller talked to me about the Rotary Club. He said, 'Elmer, I think you'd like it. It's a group of good fellows, and they stand for what you believe in. I wish you'd let me propose you for the Rotary Club.' I agreed and soon found myself reveling in the Rotary. I just marveled at the good work it did in the community and for its members."
