Additional officers are: Johnny Gaeke, Sergeant at Arms; Betty Brewer, Membership Chair; Tricia Scott, Foundation Chair; Denise Smith, Public Image Chair; Diana Weaver, Community Service Chair; Weston Cotton, International Service; Larry White, Scholarship Chair; and Robert Woodall, Youth Service Chair.

As with all Rotary events, the evening was ended with the asking of the questions in the Four Way Test: Is it the Truth? Is it Fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendship? Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

We wish all these officers the very best of luck this Rotary year.
