Soldotna Rotarians are a special type of Rotarian! Here are stories of local Rotarians and why Rotary is their organization of choice.
 
 
 
Rotarian: Merrill Sikorski-
I’ve been a member of the Rotary Club of Soldotna since June of its charter year 1979. I joined because Fred Chambers an Alaskan legend asked me to speak of my travels to the former U.S.S.R. he then asked me to join and seeing Fred was my hero said yes not knowing a thing about Rotary.  Over the last 41 years my life, my thinking, my giving has been molded by Rotary. My signature program “Caring for the Kenai” was molded after Rotary principles. To this day I believe Rotary is the best model for world peace. I became a photojournalist for the Dispatch in the nineties and covered hundreds of events that our Rotary Club participated in. I like being behind the lens not in front of it.
