Tom Zengeler and Greg Hill 
Our club's traditional changing-of-the-guard took place virtually via Zoom this year, due to the pandemic. However, it was presented with the usual good friendship and humor! On Wednesday, June 24th our outgoing President Greg Hill closed out his term with remarks about our successful fundraising efforts and continued commitment to service. Greg encouraged everyone to remain involved and continue to make an impact in our community. 

Greg installed the new officers, including incoming President Tom Zengeler. Bob Zamor and Diana Taylor received the club's Rotarian of the Year award in recognition of their significant contributions to the club and for exemplifying Rotary's motto "Service Above Self".

Our new President Tom Zengeler thanked Greg and last year's board for their hard work. He announced that Rich Schoeneman will be the club's new President-Elect. Tom invited everyone to consider this year's Rotary  theme "Rotary Opens Doors".
