This could be called "Transition Morning" as we moved from Virginia Juettner and her team to Paul Barker and his team. Paul's
team of officers, directors and "heavy lifters" were duly installed by Gary Friedman, D5500 executive assistant governor. There is no room here to list all the names. Just check the back of the Cactus Chronicle for the complete list - - and give a special thanks for their service to the club. There was a special moment when Mike Barker, Paul's father and long time Rotarian presented Paul with the Presidential Gavel.
 
In his remarks Paul first thanked his incoming team for their committment  to service. He then commented on his experiences at the International meeting in Toronto. Among his comments was his hope that he could bring this year's Rotary Theme, "Be The Inspiration" to the Club.
 
 
as Virginia stepped down she recalled how much she enjoyed her year and what an honor it was to serve. She thanked her team and urged all the Club members to be open to serving on future teams. She wished Paul and his team well in the upcoming year.
 
Than you Virginia. Thank you Paul. Thank you, team members.
