As of July 1, 2022, we have begun a new Rotary year. Welcome to President John Procter! Our President Elect is Jason Cole.
If you have received your Rotary magazine, you will see our first woman Rotary International President, Jennifer Jones. You may also read about Jennifer on our club website, Our District 5240 District Governor is Scott Phillips from the Goleta Noontime club. You will meet Scott in November, we believe. We have invited him to the pumpkin patch.
Thank you President Marilyn for a fabulous year! We truly appreciated your leadership, commitment to Rotary and friendship. Now, you can have lunch with us!
