The Club held its annual Installation Banquet which installs the new Board of Directors for the next rotary year. The Club was also able to honor a number of first time Paul Harris Fellows, including Tom Archbald, Jake Bristol, Bernie Doyle, Eric Graham, David Hiestand, Brock Lloyd, Carmen Lynes, and Michael Sawyier. Becoming a Paul Harris Fellow signify a commitment made to Rotary International’s Foundation which helps humanity around the globe. Chesterton-Porter Rotary is proud to have a large number of Paul Harris Fellows and we hope to continue to increase the number of Paul Harris Fellows next year.
The Club was honored to have as its guest and speaker, Ed Futa, past Rotary International General Secretary. Ed gave a wonderful talk about the importance of local clubs to the Rotary International mission. Local clubs provide on-the-ground support and manpower to make the work of Rotary possible. When Rotary goes into an area to give assistance, we don’t just leave. Our members remain because they are local residents that live and work in the communities we are assisting.
Thank you to everyone that made this year’s Installation Banquet possible. See you again next year! (or next Tuesday)
