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?"

Rod Campbell began his journey as a Rotarian on February 26, 1964. Fifty-four years ago Keith Jensen sponsored the businessman into the Club. Rod was the Club's President when the weekly meetings were held at the Androy Hotel.  He was well known in the community for his generosity.  Rod's work with the UW-Superior Foundation and The Bong Heritage Center are a couple of examples. His philanthropic nature extended to the Paul Harris Foundation where he achieved a Paul Harris Fellowship +8.

The annual Holiday Party ended with the  White Elephant Gift Exchange. It took on a new twist this year when Tylor Elm decided he would like to donate the pants to his Holiday suit. President Elect Kelly Peterson won the pants and is modeling them with Tylor. Gifts of all sorts including some liquid items were part of the exchange. Laughter was a huge part of the evening event!


Hannah Schoechert and Robyn Lings dedicated a portion of their Saturday to fundraising for THE SALVATION ARMY by ringing kettle bells December 16. The Rotary Club of Superior filled three days of volunteer slots to feed families in need this Holiday Season. 


District Governor Deb Warner and her husband Ed Williams visited the Rotary Club of Superior on December 6. During that visit she reminded the members that RI is encouraging Rotary Clubs to help preserve the environment by planting trees. Deb presented Club President Dan Diamon with a sapling hoping the Club will plant a tree for each member of the Club. Deb's other messages also included the need to have every member "intentionally look for new members".
