NEXT MEETING: July 28, 2019
Next Friday is the occasion of a Rotary tradition, the passing of the gavel as one president retires and another takes his place. For decades this has been called “Demotion”, but those who have shouldered the tasks of club leadership may prefer to think of it as a Promotion—back to life without those responsibilities. It’s in the eyes of the beholder.
We encourage you to attend on Friday and behold the transition, as Jan Brown assumes the role of club president. Don will do the honors of recapping Jerry’s year of club leadership. Should be fun.

- President Jerry Feagley announced the RPAL Carnival at Nichol Park August 23-25 to give kids a safe and fun summer activity. He would like to recruit a couple of Rotarians to provide a presence at the Carnival. Stay tuned.
