NOTE FROM PRESIDENT CALLOWAY
Dear Fellow Columbus Rotarians:
 
Happy New Year!  I hope you will enjoy my New Year CRC Blog...it is intentionally and necessarily longer than normal.  Hey, it may be the "new normal" but promise not this long again.  My farewell address in June is all done.
 
I will share it now:  "Having served as Columbus Rotary President was an honor.  One of my most significant years of growth in my life.  Thank you for the privilege to have served the Club, you and the community.  I will continue to serve."
 
...and as past President Carl Faehnle shared before leading the pledge and his invocation on Monday, only six more months of President Calloway...😃​​​​​​​
