Notes from
President Stokes

Happy Monday Rotary 21!
In the tradition of Service Above Self, I’m giving up my column space this week for an
important announcement from Past President Paul Viren.
I’ll see you “in person” for the debate this week and back here next week.

Membership Drive!

Paul Harris Fellow

Congratulations to James Johnson on his 4th Paul Harris Fellow!
While our club has contributed to Global Grants other clubs have sponsored, we haven’t been the lead international sponsoring club on a Global Grant in at least 15 years. Because of Jim’s leadership in taking our Interact kids to Ecuador last summer and helping us to connect with the Bahia de Caraquez Rotary Club, we are the lead international sponsor on a water system project later this year!
