On July 1 each year, around the world, the succession of leadership takes place in every Rotary Club. I am the 29th president that has been chosen to lead our club.  MSR has a wonderful tradition of leadership symbolized by "passing the gavel" and the "kick-out" party. What a great gathering we had last Thursday to honor outgoing President Cheryl.  Thank you to all that contributed food and a special thanks for our hosts, John & Carrie Oesmann.
Succession planning is absolutely vital to every club that wants to continue to have impact in their communities.   Next year Ron Helmuth will have an encore presidency.  But the future is uncertain.  Who will lead MSR the following year? Could it be you?
