Happy New Year!!!

What other organization do you know of that has a complete change in its top leadership every year on the same day – and does not skip a beat in its humanitarian work around the globe? This year’s Rotary International President-elect Shekhar Mehta encourages members to be changemakers and announced that his theme for the 2021-2022 Rotary year is Serve to Change Lives. See his story in the July issue of Rotarian magazine.

Your 2021-2022 Leadership Team:

President Joyce Henderson; President Elect Polly Sierer; Vice President Anthony Santoro; Secretary Michael Luck; Treasurer Shawn Klapinsky; Sgt. At Arms Stewart Lee; Directors Paul Keely (Membership), Tom Minto (Service Projects), Mike Reckner (Fundraising), Marie Holliday (Foundation), Robin Broomall  (Administration); Immediate Past President Dennis Greenhouse.

Monthly Program chairs needed for 2021-2022. Please respond to Anthony Santoro if you would like to chair one month of programs from August 2021 thru July 2022 (March 2022 is already taken). Contact Anthony at anthony@diamondstatephotography.com. He will have the  monthly schedule and outline of duties.

Upcoming Projects need Leaders:

Take the opportunity to sign up to chair or co-chair an activity or event for our club for the next Rotary year. Tom Minto is looking for EVERYONE to participate in leadership roles. Being a chair does  not mean you do all the work. You are just expected to coordinate the activity, solicit volunteers, oversee the activity, and report back to Tom.
