Program Highlights

Our main program today was the official Changeover from Paul to Louise.  It was done through a video that was taken at KidsAbility.  Louise Gardiner was sworn in as the new club president and Paul Rostrup was presented with his past president’s pin.
Following the video President Louise swore in the members of the Board for 2020-2021.
Newly declared President, Louise made a few remarks about her goals and plans for the year.  One of which is to recognize a member of the club each month as her Rotary Star for his or her ongoing support to the club.  Her first honouree and Rotary Star for the month of July is Howard Pell.
