President's Message
The Future Looks Bright

This weekend during some district training the speaker showed us this picture of people at Woodsock and spoke about how that generations parents referred to them as lazy & entitled. Sound familiar? Well, those lazy and entitled baby boomers are now the generation that makes up most of Rotary. Based on the future generation of leaders we had at Leadership 20/20 last week, I would say the future looks bright.

This Week's Speaker
Kirk Driskell - Vision Warrior

What does it mean to be a Vision Warrior? A Vision Warrior is a man who is in search of his true calling. A man who is willing to encourage change when needed. A man who is willing to push against resistance when in pursuit of his vision. A man who sacrifices, battles through pain, and lives a life of discipline so that he can be a better Disciple, Father, Husband, Leader and Friend. Our District Governor Elect, Kirk Driskell will share his passion for serving men recovering from addiction.
