It was a fabulous conference for our Be The Inspiration Rotary year.
 
I wrote last week about our CR Foundation and leadership service by Bill Wahoff, President, as well as his resignation.  
 
Our CR Foundation is now led by Sandy Knoesel as President.  Sandy is a Past President of CRC and also serving as an Assistant Governor in our District 6690 to several clubs.
 
Thank you Bill and Sandy.
 
See you at April’s After Hours tomorrow, Thursday, April 18th at High Bank Distillery per Evite-ok and our calendar of events.

THE FAMILY OF ROTARY


 Jackie Cooper will had surgery for a new hip on February 15, 2019, unfortunately she's back in the hospital to have some additional work preformed on the hip.   
 
New Members
On Tuesday, November 20 more than  30 people gathered to recognize our newest members and hear from DG Craig Maxey.  Our new members were "re-badged" earning their regular membership badge and recognizing their engagement in the club.
 
DG Craig gave the annual presentation of the District Governor which was very moving.  Like Past RI President John Germ the day before, DG Craig provided stories and experiences in how small our Rotary world is, yet how large an impact we play.

Here are some pics from the evening.
