Passing of the Gavel – 2015-06-24

As I compose my last email to you as President of our Club, I need to say THANK YOU FOR THE PRIVILEGE OF SERVING! It has been an honor I never dreamed of having. It’s been a lot of work and a lot of fun. And YOU have done a great job to help Light Up Rotary.

This week we celebrate the Passing of the Gavel to our incoming President Jack Hartley.

We are in great shape with our leadership as Molly Deese will be our President-Elect and Tom Gooding our President Designee. (Just a reminder that Molly will serve as our Membership Chair this year and Tom will be our Program Chair. Please pass along your program suggestions to Tom!)

Thanks again for the honor of serving.

Your friend in Rotary,

Terminal President Bob
