Dan Diamon

Dan's goals for the year mirror the ideas and values of District Governor Debra Warner.  During a presentation Deb made 3 major points.  Work on the Rotary's Public Image"tell our story", striving to keep the Foundation in the forefront and to continue to invite people to join Rotary. Dan wants to ask our members "Why Rotary?" His own answer is because of the "impact to lives down the street and across the world".  Dan also asks,"What is your passion?"

Third Grade Chess Club

Rotarian James Farkas teaches life lessons through chess

Nineteen 3rd grade students from the Great Lakes Elementary visited the Rotary Club of Superior on May 17 to share their knowledge of the game of chess. James Farkas spends time each week at the school to help the students understand the chess pieces and the moves they are allowed to make with them. 
The classes' teacher Mary Johnson-Garay along with James and the students sported the club's tee shirts designed by James. Every student treated the Rotarians with a descriptive chess piece presentation, some with clever lines such as "Once up-pawn a time...."
The Rotary Club of Superior provided the chess sets for the school.
