Last Meeting (October 12)

Today's program: Annual Installation Dinner

Tonight we welcomed guests, enjoyed food and fellowship together, and celebrated our 2016-17 year in photos and with awards. 2016-17 President Harris Segel called the meeting to order and welcomed guests. In his final remarks as president he said, "our club does great things," it has been an honor to be your president. He then put on is 2016-17 Lt. Governor hat and retired the 2016-17 officers and board of directors. Two leaving the board are Heather Langdale and Ed Ludden, thank you for your service.

2017-18 Lt. Governor Beth Elaine installed new officers and directors for the upcoming year. Cathy Smith and Lindsey Lenhart will join board members: Barbara Hartman, Bill Grant, Ada Trapanese, Todd Adams (Treasurer), Kim Berghs (Secretary), Steve Hess, Rachel Toomey (President-Elect), Harris Segel, and Liz Ross (President). Beth said the word that describes our club is dynamic and the word that describes our service was heartfelt. We know the needs of our community and center many projects around them.
