2018-2019 ERC President Kevin Roche and his team were given well-deserved gratitude for their leadership during the past year. It was also announced that the Elmbrook Rotary Club will receive a Rotary Citation with Gold Presidential Distinction for the club's successes during 2018-2019. Well done!
In his acceptance speech, 2019-2020 President Mike Schmeling lauded the past successes of Elmbrook Rotary and appealed for continued support throughout the next Rotary year. The Rotary International Presidential Theme for 2019-2020 is "Rotary Connects the World." Mark Daniel Maloney (Rotary Club of Decatur, Alabama, USA) is RI President for 2019-2020 and believes that connection is at the heart of the Rotary experience. “(Rotary) allows us to connect with each other, in deep and meaningful ways, across our differences,” Maloney says. “It connects us to people we would never otherwise have met, who are more like us than we ever could have known. It connects us to our communities, to professional opportunities, and to the people who need our help.”
