Club News

So here is the final version of our new Rotary publicity picture.  Our photographer, Toni Dengel did a great job of capturing the diversity and enthusiasm of our club.  The picture above will be used for publicity purposes for our club this year and next during our 100 year celebration.  It will be used on our Facebook page and the advertisement we insert in the SOPAA program for events in the Vern Riffe Center for the Arts.  Members in the new picture are:  Thomas Bailey, Dan Simco, Tess Midkiff, William McKinley, Reece Brown, Sean Sturgill, Steve Rader, Fred Gohmann, Brad Bergefurd, Lenore Mason, Dick Schisler, Samantha Comer, Marcie Simms, Dave Stone, Rebecca Bennett.

 
Two new Rotarians were inducted on April 22nd - Aden Johnson and Jenny Lavender.  Aden was sponsored by Dave Stone and Jenny was sponsored by Linda Woods-Jones.  Tess Midkiff stood in for Linda during the induction.
Aden is employed by Peoples Bank in Portsmouth as an Assistant Vice President/Commercial.  Jenny is a long time resident of Portsmouth with positions at the Portsmouth Public Library, a columnist for the Scioto Voice and Host of Positively Portsmouth on WTZP Zone TV.  She is currently the Manager of Volunteer Services at SOMC.  Please welcome these two new members.
 
 
Save the date!   President-Elect Samantha Comer will be inducted as our President on June 24th at our regular meeting.  More information will follow in case you would like to bring guests with you.  You will be given the opportunity to RSVP so that we are assured than sufficient food and seating will be available.  As you know, Samantha is the current chair of our Rotary Rose Sale which was very successful this year due to help from past chair Sonie Hash and the efforts of our club members to expand our sales.  

Our new Rotary District Governor Gary Vaughan for 2019/2020 will speak on July 8th at our luncheon meeting.  Gary is married to Janet and they have been married for 47 years. They are blessed with two children and four grandchildren.  Gary has been responsible for the operation water/waste water utilities for 25 years and has been an Environmental Consultant for 20 years.  Gary has been a Rotarian for approximately 30 years, he is Paul Harris Fellow, as well as a member of the Paul Harris Society.
