Rotary Happenings: Rotarians usher in new year with new officers, theme
The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club started its new year with its new elected officials.
We are happy to welcome Bill Letendre as president for 2021-22. He is excited to have a productive year with record-breaking fundraisers, as well as welcoming many new members. Annie Campbell will serve as vice president and Jonathan Dean as president-elect, while Chet Sadler will continue to serve as secretary and John Raho will continue to serve as treasurer.
The 2021-22 Rotary International President Shekhar Mehta encourages Rotarians to be change makers and to grow more so that Rotarians can do more. He said that Rotarians have the power and the magic to serve and change lives. The theme serves as an inspiration for all Rotarians and a rallying call for our efforts in this upcoming year.
The Sanibel-Captiva club is over 70 members strong with an active contingency of snowbirds during the seasonal months. We are dedicated people who share a passion for both community service and friendship.
Rotary brings together a global network of volunteer leaders who dedicate their time and talents to tackle the world’s most pressing humanitarian challenges. Rotary connects 1.2 million members for more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Their work impacts lives at both the local and the international levels.
The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club holds a meeting on Fridays at 7:30 a.m. at The Community House, at 2173 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel, and via Zoom; doors open at 7 a.m. To attend in person, email Bill Harkey at William.Harkey@gmail.com by the Tuesday before the meeting.
