Club Past President Mindy Sehon presided over the meeting.

Dave Dillon: Mindy shared the news that long time club member Dave Dillon recently passed away.  Mindy shared the story of Dave’s life, his journey to Rotary, and his many contributions to our local club and regional Rotary District.  To honor Dave’s friendship and everything he has done for Rotary and the community as a whole, we are committed to commemorating Dave as a Major Donor, one who has made cumulative donations of $10,000.  We are about $400 away from this goal.
