Hello Fellow Rotarians and Friends!

Welcome to this special new year’s edition of Rotary Roundabout!Screen Shot 12-31-18 at 10.54 AM

For sometime now, I’ve been wanting to feature Rotarians from Club 27 that I think are exemplary Rotarians in their professional and personal lives.  We have so many wonderful members that I want to highlight, but I’ve only 26 more episodes so I’ll have to pick and choose, but please know that I truly appreciate your membership and participation in our Club.

To kick off our Club 27 interviews, I’ve asked my friend and fellow Rotarian, Doug Lewis to share his experience and passion for Rotary.    So take a listen.  We also remind our club members of our upcoming Fellowship meetings on January 10th and our End Polio Now fundraiser on February 2nd.

Best wishes for a blessed, safe and happy new year and, as always, I’ll look forward to seeing you around Rotary!
