"I'm very proud of the board who joins me this year: Jody Brooke Secretary, Dale Dalton Treasurer, Past-President Rich Klahn, Brian Wright President-Elect and Foundation Chair, Shannon Sander-Welzien President Elect-elect and RYLA chair, Sue Watkins Membership . Directors: Idell Klein and Christie Collins and Rod Tokheim.  We're also fortunate to have the help from past president and District 6000 Assistant Governor; Libby Goodman.  Our club had provided thousands of service hours for our area in various projects and have exciting plans for this year.  The Rotary Club of Clinton undertook and completed the beautiful million-dollar + Eagle Point Lodge renovation, brings dictionaries to all area 3rd Grade students and last year introduced Josh The Otter Water Safety books to all area kindergarten students! Throughout the year you see our members at Christmas time bell ringing for the Salvation Army, planting trees, providing area parks upgrades, gifting secondary education scholarships, supporting the local high school INTERACT Club and filling in for many area needs.  We continue to support the International Project of Polio Eradication and World Bicycle Relief and the Haitian Water Project among others - our motto of "BE THE INSPIRATION" truly is what being a Rotarian is all about. Join us for lunch, Monday's at 12 noon, Tuscany Event Center, located behind Rastrelli's Restaurant on Main Avenue.  Accepting new members now!
