Happy Fourth of July everyone & thanks Carolyn & Russ Anderson of Lehmers once again for the cool cars, old & brand new, for our Rotary Club to show-off in the Concord parade!! Thx to George Calhoun and his leadoff tractor; my partner Jeff driving the Olds Delta 88 with Parmod & Geri on back and Gashaw driving yours truly in the beautiful Buick Cascadia in 3rd post! Great day all, good exposure at festival later tonight for both Rotary & SpiritsFest & again Happy Independence Day All!!
Look out world....the changing of the Rotary guard is happening in all of our 35,000 clubs in the next 2wks! In Concord, David Miller will be 'demoted' (Overthrown? Exiled? Something like that...) and incoming president Dave Litty (me!) takes charge!.
Wish us luck, wish me even moreso that we hit the year hard, do some great things and help make the greater Concord community an even better place for all of us to live!
Also look for us in the Concord 4th of Jul parade & bette...r yet, join us for one of our lunches to see where you might find a mutually beneficial fit, both vocationally for your work as well as serving the comnunity while having a great time with us!
