Attending the Rotary International Convention is Seoul Korea is a great way to kick off Chris' term which begins July 1st.  Hearing what Rotary is doing on an International level makes us all proud to be Rotarians.

They sent to bigwigs to our club last week to take our Best Large Club Trophy.  Sandi Schwartz, Awards Chair and Chief of Staff for DG Jim Bell came to the club to personally escort back our trophy.  It will be given to the winner of 2015/16 Best Large Club at the District Awards Luncheon this Saturday.  The District provides awards for Best Small, Medium & Large Club as well as best Club overall.  They also provide awards for the top clubs in the various areas of service (New Generations, Vocational, Community Service, Foundation, Club Service, International Service, Membership.)

We had a record number of kids attending teen track this year -- just shy of 700!  Thanks Phil for your great leadership on this event.

Great job hearing from our 6 RYLA Students at last meeting.
