  3. Our own Jeremy Chick is rallying the troops to help make it all happen.

Club Assembly – July 9, 2014

Bob Moon

We’re anticipating a great day at Rotary at the Rainwater Center!

This Club Assembly launches our year with an overview of our work and plans for 2014-2015. It will be fast-paced and informative. Sometimes we’re unaware of the scope of Rotary’s impact and our Club’s part in it. This week’s program will help dispel some of the fog and bring clarity to our mission. Plus we’ll send you off with a great tool to help you invite others to be a part of our Club. And if that doesn’t make you drool with anticipation, I’ll teach you RI President Gary Huang’s “Happy Clap” from his Taiwan Club! President Gary has chosen this as his year’s theme.

See you at the Rainwater Center as we Light Up Rotary!

Changing of the Guard Today! – June 25, 2014

Dear Friends,

Bob Moon and I are looking forward to seeing all of our fellow Rotarians at the last meeting of our Club year TODAY, Wednesday, June 25.  Yes…we will be meeting at Rainwater Conference Center!  You will have an opportunity to thank this year’s outstanding Rotary Board of Directors for their exceptional work on membership recruitment, LEAD, Imagination Library, Golf Tournament, Racing With Rotary, Service Above Self Award, Speaking Contest….and the list goes on.

We also will meet our 2014-15 Board members, and welcome the new leadership team today. Like any good leader, Bob Moon has been preparing himself for this important leadership role for months. You won’t believe the great plans he and the Board have for making our Club even more meaningful to our members, our community and our world!

It has been one of the greatest honors of my life to serve as your president this year. Thank you — sincerely — for giving me this opportunity.

Your friend, Myrna
