New Year for Rotary – Handing over the Gavel
As Josh Wallace handed over the gavel, he reflected on his role as Rotary president, he expressed thanks to many Club members, his wife Amber, below, and family. What he’s learned in his leadership position has helped him personally and professionally. “Use the hours, don’t count them.”
Cathy Brubaker-Clarke is excited to be starting her year as Club president. “I am lucky to be part of such a strong, caring group of leaders. As someone at the RI Convention shared, “No group has the talent, know-how and can-do spirit as much as Rotary.” Our group exemplifies this. One of the first things I want to say coming into my year, Cathy said, is, “If it’s not broke, we don’t have to fix it.“
Cathy’s areas of emphasis: Rotary membership retention and recruitment; host
networking events; host community forums; strengthen international projects while
partnering with other Rotary clubs in the District; host inbound Youth Exchange Students and sponsor an outbound Youth Exchange Student; participate/partner in projects involving a corporate or government partner; involve local media in events/fundraisers; continue RotarActors, InterActors and EarlyActors in Club events; support the new EarlyAct club; Promote International Foundation Giving; Support annual fund drives for Polio Plus and the Food Drive.
Other newly-elected leaders are Kathy Moore, president-elect; and Linda Juarez, president-nominee.
It’s a new Rotary year kicked off with purpose and vision.
