Greetings from the Rotary International Convention in Toronto!  Our time has been chock-a-block full of amazing events, terrific speakers, and loads of fellowship activities in this terrific city.  Looking forward to sharing more of our experiences with you when we return.
Well, we have come to the end of another Rotary year.  This week, Rotary will transform itself with new leaders in every club, district and zone, as well as at the international level as Barry Rassin takes over as Rotary International President and a new board of directors is installed.  This is a strangely unique aspect of Rotary, but one which breathes new life into every aspect of our work and service. 
This Thursday morning, I will pass the gavel as Club President over to Rick Zayaitz to lead the club in 2018-2019.  I know Rick and the incoming board of directors and officers can count on the same level of support and encouragement that I received from you all during the last year.
It has been an honor and privilege to serve as your Club President in 2017-2018.  At the Club Recognition Dinner last week, I recounted your many acts of service, financial support and fellowship over the last year.  When I listed off the many local and international beneficiaries of our club during the past year, it was truly profound to remember the impact our 94 members had on our local community and around the world in 2017-2018 through your generous gifts of time, talent and treasure.  This is what Rotary is all about and I greatly admire your dedication to “Service Above Self.”
Best wishes to you all and thank you for your friendship. 
Yours in Rotary,
