The President’s Corner

Happy 4th of July!  Hope you had a great holiday weekend and are ready for the start of a new Rotaract Year.  All across the world, Rotaract & Rotary President-Elects, along with their new boards, took their positions on July 1st for the next year!  Our next meeting is this Thursday, July 9th at High Tide Burrito in San Marco.

Thanks to the fellow Rotaractors that came out to ImpactJAX’s YP Expo last Tuesday at Aloft in Tapestry Park.

We met many young professionals & we hope to see them at our next membership meeting.

Marie Vogler; Haskell; Outstanding ACE Mentor

We are excited to have Marie Vogler speak to us.  She will tell us about the logistics of creating and organizing her event the Mt. Acosta Classic, a sporting event that raised funds for the Jared Bynum Scholarship Fund.  It’s coming in on its 4th year and has raised over $31,000.

We look forward to seeing you on Thursday!
