Past President Dave presented new President Steve Roach with a really cool Self Contained Liquid Delivery System hat, emblazoned with the prophetic moniker "Party Patrol".
The new Leadership Team.
Dave "pins" President Steve with the official Rotary pin.
President Steve honored past president Dave with another plaque for his "ego" wall.
You can tell past president Dave can't wait to try on his present from President Steve. Pretty sure he'll be rockin' it at next year's Havana Nights.
