Typically July 1st is the changeover in Rotary leadership, but due to a job relocation, this activity took place on June 14th for our club.,
As a Rochester Rotarian for the last nine years, and especially in this previous year as our President, David has been a gentle, kind, thoughtful, caring, and friendly leader. His experience as the Senior Pastor of St. Paul's United Methodist Church here in Rochester has served the community and our club very well. 
Dave moved to Rochester with his wife Sarah and son Ryan from Frankenmuth, MI. They now move on to a church in Grosse Pointe, MI. 
During the past year, David completed our transition from our hybrid (online/in-person) meeting, moved the club to a new meeting venue at the Rochester Community House, oversaw the adoption of new bylaws, helped establish a solar lighting project in Ghana, brought in 17 new members, restarted the club's fundraising activities, and hosted several club social events.
Our loss is Grosse Pointe's gain, and we encourage the Grosse Pointe Rotary Club to take advantage of David's extraordinary leadership skills!
