Rotary Club Update June 27, 2019
  • Last week (27 June) we had the transition of the club presidency from John Armbrust to Mike Dodson.
  • Dale Bradley introduced Dennis Butler, Director of the RCPD as our speaker.  He spoke about his background, his views on law enforcement and some of the issues he is working on in Riley County. He stressed openness and communications.
  • Next week (11 July – no meeting on 4 July) Steven Graham will introduce Judy Davis from the Crisis Center as our speaker.
  • As a reminder, Barry Rassin, RI President (2018-1019), in his farewell message stated that the trustees approved including environmental sustainability into each of the six areas of Rotary focus.
  • Also as a reminder, each of you has received an email about the formation of a District Human Trafficking Committee.  We will likely have to add this committee, perhaps as a sub-committee to our list of Committees. The District committee will meet either bi-monthly or quarterly with the first meeting taking place in July in Topeka.  If you are interested in being involved with this committee you should contact Patti Mellard at
  • We said good-bye to John Paul Gonzalez who is moving to Bethesda, Maryland. He is planning to join one of the local clubs there. Thanks to J.P. for his membership and all of the interesting guests he has brought to our club.
