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?"
