President Elect Training, March 14, 2016
What a great experience it was to be one of nearly 400 attendees at North Central President Elect Training in Rochester, MN last weekend.
 
I'm inspired to lead the club as we head into The Rotary Club of Hopkins' 79th Year.  Having been part of the club for 11 years, I've gotten to know our elders and I'm passionate about engaging the next generation of Rotarians to continue our club's longstanding Legacy of Service Above Self.
 
Here's a photo of me and District Governor Elect, Mark Hegstrom, as I received my Banner for the 2016-2017 Rotary Year.
 
Our Global Rotary Theme will be:
