Buying or selling a home is one of the most important decisions in a persons life. I enjoy helping people to find just the right house, that makes them happy each day.
I do public speaking against DUI driving for free. I have been speaking since 2009 and have spoken to around 18,000 people so far. Currently speaking twice a month for Second Chance Columbus. I also have earned the Distinguished Toastmaster Award from Toastmasters International.
I joined Rotary International in 2012 and am a member of the Tri-Village Rotary Club (Upper Arlington/Grandview/Marble Cliff).
I have served as Sargeant-At-Arms, Vice-President, President, and Past President. Serving is a fun and rewarding experience.
In March 2023, I went to Uganda and the village of Namabasa to review my Global Grant water and sanitation project. While there we also did a medical clinic, gave out food, delivered a Toastmaster SpeechCraft Seminar, visited sponsored children, and checked out the chess club I started in 2010. Some of them are now expert level players!
The Global Grant is now complete and clean water is provided to over 1,000 people and clean new toilets for the Linda Good Samaritan Primary School with 800 children.
I am forming a first ever joint Toastmasters and Rotary Club. We will meet twice a month on Tuesday evenings for dinner, speeches, and fellowship. Focus will be on community service, humorous and inspiring speeches, and having FUN! Contact me for details.
I have attended many district conferences for both Toastmasters and Rotary. However I took it further and attended International conventions, 3 each for Toastmasters and Rotary. Places include Toronto, Chicago, Vancouver, Hamburg Germany, and Cincinnati.
My club recently celebrated its 75th anniversary in November 2022. Our club is going strong and meets every Thursday Morning from 7 to 8 am and on Zoom. We have members from Ohio, California, Florida, and Uganda. See franklin524.toastmastersclubs.org for details. Visitors are welcome. Experience Inspiring speeches every week.
