 Minutarian Update, Week 48

This past week we celebrated the chartering of club number 60, Interlachen and Lakes Area. With over 150 people in attendance, representing thirty or more of our Rotary Clubs, it was a great night. PDG John T Capps, from Morehead City, North Carolina was the keynote speaker. John T is a great friend of District 6970. Many of you have wished our new club well and sent in your gift of $50 to get them off the ground. Additionally, a large number of clubs presented their checks to charter president Danny Hemphill at the celebration. I want to personally thank John T, all those in attendance, and all our newest Rotarians in the Interlachen and Lakes Area. As stated, a great night! We welcome you to the greatest organization on the planet. As an added bonus, at the same celebration we welcomed our newest Interact club, Interlachen High.

A few weeks ago, I told you about the Rotary Council on Legislation, and the fact it meets every three years. The next meeting is scheduled for 2016. Please join me in thanking PDG Brent Williams for reconvening our Nominating Committee. Voting members AG Karen Weiss, Vicki-lynne Gloger and PDG Dave Faraldo, selected PDG Cynde Covington as our representative, and PDG Russ Miller the alternate in the event Cynde is unable to attend. Thanks to the committee, and thanks to Cynde and Russ for their willingness to serve.

This Monday is Memorial Day. Please remember those that paid the ultimate price, in service to our country.

Keep doing those wonderful things you do! Have a great week!
