President's Corner


  • MASKS !!
  • ……..AAAARGH !!
….had to
get that out of my system.

Last week I was able
to give out some good Rotary news. How about some more….!

Long-time member, Don
Lochmoeller, (a Club 11 Rotarian since 1979) was recently featured on KMOV and
the CBS Morning News as he was released from the hospital recovering from
Covid-19. AttaBoy, Don!!

Motown Mike Mosella
reports that there have been over 150 views on social media of the “Throw
Back Thursday” video of featuring Mike DeCola’s March 2018
presentation on the 100th PGA Championship at Bellerive CC. There has
been great response to all of the “Throw Back Thursday” videos –
thank you Motown Mike and Doug Russell

“Call a Rotarian
on Tuesday Day” kicked off on April 7. I personally called five
Rotarians ranging from Senior Actives to several of our newer members.
I’d say that both sides enjoyed the conversation and my “callees” appreciated
the call. Let’s do it again on April 14.

We are attempting to
get an up-date from the M.A.C. to find out when we can get back to regular
Rotary business. We hope to do so as soon and as prudently as possible.
