"Turning The Wheel" ??

.....from Fred Heismeyer to Scott Holder!  

As always, the "Changing of the Guard" meeting is a Club favorite!  This year's was no different, interlaced with humor and tributes as Fred Heismeyer passed the gavel to Scott Holder.  Fred was so good to bring us many fresh ideas and always kept us informed of club matters, as well as District and International matters.  In fact, the title of this article was introduced by Fred.  He shared with us that, when visiting a Rotary club in Russia, that club calls the process of changing leadership as "turning the wheel".  Many thanks to Fred Heismeyer, "our fearless leader" for all of the energy and leadership he shared with our Club this year and good luck to Scott as he leads us for 2017-18!    Congratulations, too, go out to Kim Goodnight and Lynn Jeane, each presented with the "Service Above Self" award and Anne Schneider, awarded "Rotarian of the Year".  Fred also recognized and thanked his board members and our own Foundation's board members.  The meeting concluded with a wonderfully funny slide show, put together by Scott, "roasting" Fred.  
 
What a year it's been, EWR!
