We heard from our own Joe DiPietro, (below) who gave us an updated classification talk. Joe grew up in East Meadow, NY, in the New York suburbs on Long Island. He attended a local community college, then made the big transition to Georgetown University in DC, where he majored in foreign service. A few years after graduation, he switched careers and joined an insurance agency, then helped start his own firm with three other partners. He joined Rotary (and North Bethesda) shortly after that, and he’s been with us ever since—more than 30 years. He’s served in many roles at NRBC—but, according to this reporter, has never said a discouraging word! Thanks, Joe!
