A Note of Thanks -
As we close the 2016-17 Rotary Year, let's thank Randy Van Rooyen for his dedicated leadership this past year.
I don't know if Randy was ever a Boy Scout, but he certainly ascribes to the "leave the campsite better than you found it" rule.  After conducting a thoughtful member survey, he enhanced or created new ways for our membership to engage, both in service and in fellowship.  Pre- and post-meeting emails, 5th Monday socials, and the 45th Anniversary Celebration helped Rotarians stay engaged and connected.  Quarterly drawings encouraged Rotarians to invite guests to our meetings and 10 new members were welcomed into our club.  The President's Challenge encouraged us to take one or two small steps to expand our Rotary experience.  A succession plan was put into place and now we have greater depth and continuity in the leadership team. And the creation of a new signature fundraiser, Lobsterfest, will enhance the club - and benefit our community - for years to come! 
Thank you, Randy, for your time and dedication to Rotary East!
