A Millennial Takes the Wheel

The following was performed by the very talented children of our incoming president Ken. None of whom was afflicted with the "Ginger Gene".
Invocation: Matthew Beurmann 10 years old
Flag Salute: Lizzy Beurmann also 10 years old
Song: My Country Tis of Thee by 9-year-old Abby Beurmann


There were so many guests I hope to not have left any out.
  • 5240 District Governor Deborah Linden
  • Incoming  District Governor Dana Moldovan
  • 22-23 incoming Scott Phillips
  • Representatives from all our local Bakersfield chapters were in the house as well.
It was time for Garro Ellis to hand over the gavel (really it’s the President Rotary Pin). He humbly and swiftly recognized all his board members individually with beautiful bronze plated plaques, with a special one for Mary, Mike McCoy and the Rotarian of the Year: Willie Boy Willis!
On to the main attraction. As the first scribe of the new president’s term, I have to let you know I was out of breath and got writer’s cramp after the first 60 seconds. Actually, I didn’t want to take notes because the speaker was so attention-grabbing and the content so captivating that I found myself in a "Beurmann Trance". I couldn’t look away! And then when I thought we had another 15 minutes, the President presented us the awesome Mini-Kenny to remind us of the gift of giving, bellowed out “Adjourned”, banged the bell, and disappeared.
“Don’t stress out about how your career is going. You don’t have a career. You have a life.”
In case you missed it, here are some of the key take-aways:
Chad Tongco, straight up gansta'.
The lovely Mrs. Sampson made a cameo visit.
Bob Allison with another cool virtual background.
This is what Ken will give to all of our guest speakers. And a $50 donation in their name to League of Dreams.
