Sunrise Rotarians attendees were rewarded for shaking off early year doldrums by being “Awake, Alert, Enthusiastic” for an ecstatic celebration of the ending of the ruthless and scandalous Bruce Hatfield regime. The mood was welcoming for the Jeff Van Buren administration, although he started his new presidency by showering the “Rotarian Magazine” with special accolades for a recent article – which he then proceeded to forget the name of the article. Jeff, you have now proven that you are “one of us”. We already love you as our new CUSR president.
President VanBuren announced that the CUSR motto for the year will be “Peace Through Service”.
Gary Olsen announced that Champaign Rotary Club had contributed $4500 to Shelter Box.
We welcomed our Assistant Governor Jon Rector and his wife Cathy to our meeting.
