Noon meeting - Kory's final meeting as president  
Past President Mike Kintner conducted this year's End of Year, Peaceful Transfer of Power, Presidential Roast/Recognition/Tribute, etc. (some of the names traditionally assigned to the final meeting of the Rotary year as we transfer the leadership reins).  This year as usual, a panel of past presidents made their case as to president Kory's worthiness to be admitted to that elite gaggle known as the Past President's Club.  Each made his case and voted up or down.  Watch the video for these brutal but entertaining assessments.

Exciting news! The Rotary Foundation of Canada has gifted $1 Million to the fight against polio. It is the first such donation of its kind.  It should help Rotary reach its goal of $50 Million by the end of this Rotary year. I have already posted on our FB page a thank you to our fellow Dist. 5060 members in Canada for their generosity.
