President Samantha Comer was inducted on June 24th as our President for 2019-2020 and will serve the first 6 months of our Centennial year in 2020.  President Samantha was welcomed by Past President Reece Brown who served for 2 terms as President - one of only 4 presidents in our 100 years as a club including Chuck Maillet, Stephanie Neff, and Dave Stone.  
 
In addition to being a successful Rotary Fish Fry Chair, Samantha works at SOMC as the Revenue Cycle Contract Analyst.  She has been married to Bill Comer for 9 years and has two children, Dante and Alessandra.  President Samantha has a Bachelors in Psychology and a Masters in Library Science.  Welcome President Samantha.  Let's all give her our support as we enter our 100th year as a club.
        
 
One of President Samantha's first acts was to welcome President-Elect Steve Rader as her right hand during 2019/20 and as our President in July 2020 as we celebrate our 100th year as a club.   Steve actually looks surprised in this photo during the induction. 
 
Steve is Program Director of Sport Studies at Shawnee State University since fall 1996 and oversee majors in Sport Management and Exercise Science and serves as a Professor of Sport Management.  Steve joined the Board of the Ohio River Valley Red Cross in December 2010 while Mary Arnzen was Executive Director.  He was then elected Board Chair in June 2014.  He also serves on the Board of the Cincinnati-Dayton Region of Red Cross.  Most recently, Steve received the Marcia Sanderlin Award for service to the ORV chapter in 2018 and the "Leadership Award" from ORV.   We are lucky to have Steve accept the responsibility of leading us into our 100th year.  Let's all give him our support!
 
 
Time to mark your calendar for the 2019 Rotary Fish Fry on Friday August 30th
 
We need all Rotarians to either help with setting up the stand, working the event on Friday morning, afternoon or evening or helping to tear down and move everything back to its storage area on Friday evening.  Stan Jennings will be handing out sign up sheets closer to the event, but now is the time to block out a few hours on your calendar when you can help with this event.  The amount of money we can give to community initiatives is based upon the amount of money we earn from our two fundraisers - the Fish Fry and the Rose Sale.  So mark your calendars, come out and have some fun and be sure to sell or give away your Fish Fry tickets when the time comes.  Service above Self!
