FOR THOSE ROTARIANS WHO MISSED THE MEETING ON TUESDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2014.
Tuesday, October 14, 2014 marked the day we would receive our annual visit from District 5440, District Governor, Phil Murphy and his wife, Sara. Phil’s talk was inspiring. Phil talked about his involvement in Rotary, and how he understands Rotary has the power to change lives. Phil talked about the “relevance” of Rotary as we move forward and our very real need as an International Organization to address membership recruitment and retention. There is no question that Phil has a deep passion for Rotary and he shared it with us in meaningful ways. Thank you so much Phil and Sara for gracing us with your presence and insights. We are much appreciative.
Thank you to Geneva Taylor who served as our Greeter and introduced our guests and visiting Rotarians. Special recognition to our Assistant Governor, Randy Looper for his participation in the events of the day.
