President’s Corner 7.30.18

Hi everyone,

We had an awesome meeting last Thursday followed by a fun dinner at The Bearded Pig. Our speaker was Julia Kalinski, the Director of Resource Development from Daniel Kids. We learned about her Rotary story and all Daniel Kids does for our community. She also updated us on the visitation center, which was the beneficiary of our 2017 Black Tie Blue Jeans Gala. They were able to fully renovate this space with new floors, fresh paint, rugs, and update the design in general. We look forward to continue working with Julia as our Rotary liaison and with Daniel Kids.
