Almost Past President Mary Ann told us that, when she started her journey as President, her passion was the eradication of Polio. We just recently heard that Africa is now Polio free! She said she has been inspired by the hard work and dedication and thanked everyone for making this the Best Rotary Club in the World!

She acknowledged everyone who served on the Foundation Board and those on the Club Board.

Special thanks went out to the chairs and members of the various Avenues of Service: Christel Chesney, Club Service; Miguel Sandoval, Community Service; Cynthia Woodruff-Neer, Youth Service; Gerry Porter, International Service and Laudon Rowen, Vocational Service.

Also recognized were Julie Jenkins who did an amazing job with Awards; PE Nominee Patty Griffin for her work as Grants Chair; Nancy McKarney for a great job as Membership Chair and Otis Archie for Public Relations.

Mary Ann also thanked Sgt-At-Arms Andrew Boyd-Goodrich for getting our meeting going; Otis Archie for the weekly invocations; Donna Crocker for providing so many interesting programs; Nancy Carr for all the personal notes she sent out for Family of Rotary; Julia Rice for organizing our lunches each week; PP Mike Griffin for being the Neal Jensen Cheerleader; Fine Master Rick Low for the humorous way he made sure all pledges were paid; PP Sheriff Dick Cameron for making sure everyone wears their pin and, Bob Putney for all his work as Polio & TRF Chair and Club Executive Secretary.

President Mary Ann then presented an Above & Beyond pin to Linda Sherman, Cynthia Woodruff-Neer and Sue Robinson.

Mary Ann acknowledged the amazing job Miguel Sandoval has done organizing and carrying out the community food program that has helped so many of our local residents impacted by COVID-19 layoffs. In recognition of his efforts, Miguel was named Rotarian of the Year and presented with a Paul Harris pin. Congratulations Miguel.

Our Prez then told us that she would be taking some time during future meeting to acknowledge other club members.
