We had 2 club anniversaries David Eardley 8 years and Joe Abro 1 year. 

David Eardley was our program today. We learned of his journey from the eastside of Detroit, through his UofM and Garrett seminary studies to his career that finally brought him to us here in Rochester by way of St. Paul's UMC. 

David reflected on the 1,200,000 Rotary members, in 35,000 clubs around the world working together to unite people and create lasting change, serving to change lives. 

David then reviewed the year to come, acknowledging the board members, our budget, and our goals for the year. Some of note are:

  • 100 members
  • engagement of 60
  • 5 service projects
  • 6 social engagements
  • to have each member invite at least one person to attend a meeting this year

We are still on the look for a forever meeting home.


Yes, this is a challenging time.  But, we are Rotarians, we will rise to the challenge, and our resilience and power of adaptation will prevail over this.  Thanks everyone, have a great week.
