The President’s Corner

Thank you to our guest speaker from the Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation, Eric Heineman. Their mission to provide college scholarships and educational counseling to military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty is a very noble cause. Please check them out to find more about them and ways you can help.

Congratulation to Emily Ferguson. At our last meeting she was presented with theScott Amos Rotaractor of the Year award. The award was given to her in recognition for her commitment to the club and her dedication to service above self.
