A MEMBERSHIP GREETING           Bonjour, Namaste, Ciao, Ni hao, Guten tag

I am sure that you have walked into a gathering without knowing a single person there.  That uncomfortable awkward feeling is just part of being human.  One way to make our visitors feel welcome is to have a greeter assigned to each meeting.  

I recently visited a nearby Rotary club and was surprised that they did not have a greeter.  Of course, the members were friendly and helped me out with the logistics of their meeting but it got me thinking about the visitors we have at rotary who are from other countries.  The exchange students we see come from all over the globe.  A handshake or a hug might seem as foreign to them as scrapple is to non-Pennsylvanians.  In Africa the Kanouri tribe wave their fists close to their head to say hello.  In Maori they place their noses and foreheads against the host’s.   In Tibet sticking out your tongue is considered a polite greeting.  I’ll be sure to do my research prior to visiting a club outside of the US.
