On Tuesday, June 20th, we gathered at Verrill Farm in Concord to install our new officers and celebrate the past year under the leadership of Ingrid Detweiler. The delicious food, the perfect weather and most importantly the fellowship  made for a wonderful evening. In addition to installing our new officers, Jean Goldsberry-President, Rebecca Lynch- President  Elect, Jeanne Armocida-Secretary and Peter  Mahler-Treasurer, awards were given to several Concord Rotarians.
A Club President can from time to time decide to transfer points earned by gifts that our members have made to the Rotary Foundation. With the points that were transferred, these Rotarians are eligible to receive an initial or subsequent Paul Harris Fellowship award. The following Rotarians received these Paul Harris awards: Rebecca Lynch (PHF) Jeanne Armocida (PHF + 1) Helen Halloran  (PHF +1) Hilary Taylor (PHF+2) Steve Kirk (PHF + 2)
Ingrid Detweiler also rerceived a  PHF +1 in addition to a gold Past President's pin.


Another one of our members, Peter Mahler, received an award for his "service above self". Our Club Award is named after our honorable long time member Dick Hale. It is called the Richard L. Hale Club Service Award. It is an opportunity to thank and honor a member who has provided much support and assistance over the years since he transferred to the Concord Club in 2014. Four years later he assumed the role of Treasurer and has kept our Club financially healthy ever since. Peter Mahler supports our Club in many ways but his primary job as Club Treasurer has been carried out with expertise and patience as he helps each new Club President learn the ins and outs of club finances.  

 In addition to these awards Hilary Taylor and Rebecca Lynch were given travel mugs in recognition of all their hard work on our first Music Fest. Finally, some funny joke gifts were presented to members, adding to the fun! Sharon Spaulding was presented a Tierra as our Princess of Fun. If Sharon is involved , you can be sure there will be fun and laughter aplenty! Karl Kussin is our go to guy for all things related to zoom. If there's a problem with our zoom meetings, Karl comes to the rescue. He has been named the Zoom Wizard and received a wizard's hat which we are sure he will cherish.

As we head into a new Rotary year, we are full of hope for the future of Rotary and our club and we look forward to Jean Goldsberry's leadership. Be sure to check out the photo album on the right to see pictures from the evening!
