This is our traditional changing-of-the-guard.  The Rotary Presidency runs from July to June.  COVID times interrupted our 2020 Charter Night, so we had a lot to make up.
 Roger mimicked the zoom meetings that began in the last quarter of his year.
Traditionally, the incoming president must put on the ceremonial club chaps at Charter Night.  In more catching up, Debbie donned the chaps and then, Michelle as in-coming president, had her turn.
We introduced 7 new members. Six joined in this Rotary year and one in March just at the beginning of lockdown. All but one were able to attend and get their Rotary pins and badges.  Ken Robinson caught up on the four members who have achieved new or another level of Paul Harris status in relation to their contributions to the Rotary Foundation.
We had over 60 members and guests in attendance. There was a drawing for fun this and that’s, great food and we even caught up by singing happy birthday to all. This was our first time for a big gathering for what seemed like a very long time. Lot’s of laughter and smiles all around!
It was my parting shot for my presidential year and the first time I had the microphone at a meeting…so look out!  I took the group for a journey of their participation and accomplishments for the past year in relation to our strategic plan and demonstrated how we had realized so much of the intention we had dreamed! We significantly impacted club operations, membership, leadership and service. By the end of it all, the group was worn out from standing for every time they had contributed to a mentioned accomplishment.  The point was made.  We forget the significance of one person, one hour, one dollar, one pie at a time.  When added up, the outcome is astounding!  It is the Power of Together!
