Listen to Club Assembly 2019-2020 Year in Review
Club Assembly 2019-2020 Year in Review
Message From The President
There are just two regular meeting remaining in my year. This week you will hear about the accomplishments of your individual Board members. We had our first Club Assembly last December, which was a summary of the first 6 months. Now we get to close out our year with the accomplishments of the entire year.
As I have often said, when I met with the Past Presidents during my PEE and PE year to take advantage of their experiences, I was so grateful for their council, mentorship and genuine desire to help me be the best President I could be.
In all my discussions, there were three universal points:
1. Begin and End the meeting on time. Check
2. Your President year will be the best you ever have in your Rotary career. Check
3. You will have one big thing during your year.
Well, I really had three, but the first two paled in comparison to the coronavirus and its directives. Checkmate.
Making the decision to cancel live events and go virtual was the right thing to do. However, I and many members likely began to feel as the weeks stretched into months, was this a new normal for our club as well as most clubs worldwide? Still cannot answer that question, but cancellation of our District Conference and the International Convention made that a possibility.
It is my goal to bring our club back to the greatness we have known for the last 97 years, end my year on a high note and pass the baton to Incoming President Richard Jost.
Please enjoy the Board members reports and our accomplishments in this week’s Wheel.
A special thank you to:
• Shawn Noorda for keeping the club running smooth and listening to me.
• Marie Walsh and John Ingeme for running our weekly raffle.
• Dr Andy Kuniyuki as Speakers Chair, some of the best speakers I have heard.
• Fawn Chandler for producing the Wheel each week.
• The whole gang at Bolt Goodly for weekly website and podcast updates.

Doing so made it possible to support the industry more efficiently and keep the most accurate of records. Her focus now is to digitize the entire historical library so one may google for any record they may need. She will be sharing her power point with us so look for that via email.
