President's Message
Samalid Hogan

Dear Rotarians,

In the next few months, we will be working on a strategic plan to shape our Club for the next three years. As you may know, drafting a strategic plan involves creating a vision with supporting goals that can be measured and revised as needed. Our goal as a Club will be to create a vision with strategic priorities to help us achieve our vision. We will also be developing annual goals that support each strategic priority. Sounds like a lot of work, I know, but my goal will be to make our meetings fun and engaging. All we need is for you to attend the meeting with an open mind and be willing to participate in the process.

This Friday, July 22nd, after introductions, Club announcements, and updates, we will use our meeting time to begin working on our Club strategic plan. It will be a very important meeting for all Rotarians to attend. I hope to see you there and please reach out to me directly if you have any questions.

Samalid Hogan, President 2022-2023
