President's Message MARCH 2014
March 3, 2014
Welcome to March!
Yesterday I had the chance to do something that Rotarians in
conventional clubs take for granted, I shared a meal with our President Elect
Tracy Adams. Tracy was in town to attend
a four district wide President Elect Training Seminar (PETS). Tracy will post some pictures on her Facebook
page, so check out all the celebrities she met while attending PETS.
Tracy is just one of the newly elected Board of
Directors. A big congratulations and
great thanks go to all who will serve the 2014-2015 year: Please welcome the new officers:
President – Tracy AdamsPresident Elect Jeremy Penner
Past President – Deborah Brackney
Treasurer – Joe Spears
Secretary – Emmanuel Serrière
Service Committee Chair – Jason Griffith
Public Relations Chair- Tressa Breindel
Membership Chair – Megan McLean
Club Administration – Buchi Akpeh
Foundation Chair – Charlie Tegarden
The one time of year that we get to spend some face -to
-fact time is at our Rotary International Convention. Over 24 Rotarians and their families will
be attending the conference in Sydney.
Our annual dinner is Monday June 2nd. Chris Joscelyne reports that there are over
100 tickets sold
for the Grand Banquet. It will be a
wonderful evening. For more information
about this event and others at the convention, please go to the website. Our eClub secretary and website liaison,
Emmanuel, created an entire page of Sydney activities. Regarding our website, Emmanuel reported
that we had 4,798 make ups in January.
That is an incredible number of guests attending our club.
As I end
this message, I want to say “thank you” for being part of this special
club. In January, 86% of you, our
members, participated in Rotary activities, 68% of you voted on a revision to
our bylaws and 10 of you applied for and received Community Service Grants to
support good works in your community. So
while we may not have the luxury of a meal together, the work of this club is
eClub One 2013-2014
