Please tell us what factors helped you decide to join Rotary.

Raising awareness with postings on social media, such as Facebook. Signs and banners all over town.

Do you have any advice to offer others in our district about how best to achieve a successful fundraiser?
Ask Rotarians personally for their participation. Consider partnering with another organization - the type that helps charities raise money
Do you have any innovative plans for Rotary-related publicity during your presidency?
We post a large sign outside of every meeting and event to raise awareness, We made a huge banner for the town center to celebrate our 90th year.
As president, what’s your biggest concern for the coming year?
Creating flexibility in meeting times, places and what a “meeting” is considered. For example, our visiting a nursing home each month counts as a meeting.

Any of the John Grisham books.
What’s your favorite quotation?
“You can not control people, only yourself”
