Guest Speaker


This week our guest speaker was our former member and Past Vice President of RI Dean Rhors.


Her presentation was about the many incredible experiences she had as RI VP last year. 


One of her first assignments was to represent Rotary International at the funeral for Rotary International President-elect Sam F. Owori who died unexpectedly. She was hosted along with heads of State for the funeral.


She also spoke on how Rotary is looking at new, innovative administration models and a more regionalized approach for new clubs. There is a new membership type being tested in Houston, Texas that is called "Global Membership". With this type of membership, people are not directly linked to one club in particular and are encouraged to be involved with several clubs.


Thought of the day:
