Lakewood/rocky River Sunrise Rotary sincere appreciation to all who attended this morning's meeting and induction of Officers and Board for the Rotary Year 2018/2019 "Be the Inspiration"
Kathy did her induction of Officers and Board with her usual enthusiasm and prompting "Ha", we all need a little instruction every now and then.  Chuck shared his appreciation for all who supported and helped throughout his tenure (2 times now!!).  Many thanks from me to Chuck for his mentorship and guidance as I assume the role of President.
Kim Murphy was sworn in as our newest board member and she and Kevin Beirne have already stepped up to take the lead on the Rocky River Assistance Program school supply drive.  WOW and thank you to some of our newest members!!
We had two guests Louis from Mexico, a 5 time President of his Club and Chris who has relocated back to Ohio from New England.  Nice to have an international guest as well as prospective member in attendance this morning.
We presented Karen King a card of sympathy for the recent loss of her Father and our prayers are with her and her family.
For those of you who read the entire message, take note: NO MEETING JULY 4 in observance of the holiday!
Our next/first Board meeting of the new year will be on July the 11th at 6 pm in the Lakewood Library.  Note this is a change of days from Monday to Wednesdays!
"Be the Inspiration" is our new theme for the coming Rotary year.  Please take time to think about who has inspired you?  Have you taken time to thank them?
It may have been a teacher, a minister, a coach, your Mom & Dad???  Think about how we can incorporate inspiration into our meetings, our activities, and our actions.  Think about how we can become the inspiration for the youth community we have focused on.  They will be our next members, our next leaders.
Thank you for all you do.
