July 1:  Presidential Transition



Thank you from President Mike


I'll start by saying that I am very confident that Christine Smart will be a great president during the 2015-16 session of Cedar Rapids West Rotary.  She is an intelligent, successful business owner with a "can do" attitude, and will keep this club moving in a positive direction.


One of the difficult things about saying thanks, is that I usually end up forgetting someone.  So, let's just say there were MANY of you who helped with pancakes, backpacks, scholarships, Van Buren, Interact, RYLA, and other ways.  Thanks also goes to those who kept the weekly meeting wheels in motion with music, news, invocation, fun / frolic, website, and other support.  Extra thanks to Denny McGivern.




After a distinguished career in the Air Force, Ken Rizer now represents District 68 in the Iowa House.  He has a very busy schedule, and we thank him for visiting us on June 24 to share some of his many adventures. 



Be sure to say hello to our newest West Rotarian T.J. Filip when you see him.
