Lewisburg Rotary Banquet & New Member Induction
On Friday night, April 17th, a special Rotary Banquet was held at Saddle Creek Golf Club.
The evening was kicked off by Amy Irvin, President of the Lewisburg Rotary. In addition to dinner, the program consisted of a historical overview of the Lewisburg Rotary Club by Edmund Roberts, which dated back to 1923. Donna Roberts provided an overview of Rotary International and explained how Rotary, along with key partners, has been able to reduced polio cases by 99 percent worldwide.
A highlight of the evening was an inspirational speech provided by Ki Hyon Kim (Kim Kim), Rotary District Governor District 6760, of how Rotary has impacted his life and as a result allowed him to impact the lives of others.
Another key event of the evening was the induction of several new members by Clay Derryberry.
Clay provided an analogy of the Robert Frost poem, "The Road Not Taken" to the commitment of Rotarians of "Service Above Self". Frost wrote "I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference."
New members inducted were Eric Michael, Mike Keny, Jennifer Pearson, Norma Cross, Julie Johnson, Susan Vanhooser, Lynn Stocstill and Andrea Rogers
