Here's Everything You Need to Know...
 
 
President Russell Hammond - Russell thanked us for the opportunity to be our President, and he is honored. He also thanked Past President Doug Turner for his quick and efficient implementation of virtual meetings. This kept us together, and moving forward. President Russell just attended his first District Governor/Club Presidents meeting. He related that new District Governor, Bob Kemp, advised clubs to be flexible and adaptive during these strange and changing times. Russell assured us that he is always open to innovative ideas, suggestions, and constructive criticism. He will try varied methods of promoting fellowship in this virtual world. Sometimes it will work and sometimes fall flat, but we'll keep at it! Thank YOU, President Hammond!
 
Oh, and his first act as our new president is to give Alan Rubin a new name: GO RAMS!

Our Speaker:
 
Mark Scharenbroich's speaking career took off after an experience in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He had stumbled upon Harley Davidsons' 100th Year Anniversary celebration. Perhaps, you too have encountered a large group of Harley's and their owners? It can be an exhilarating, awe inspiring and intimidating experience. But, what if you simply say, "Nice Bike?" This is what he kept overhearing people say as they passed bikers. Instantaneously, meaningful connections began.  Mark believes that meaningful connections are the basis for a life filled with greater success. When you "Acknowledge, honor and connect and you will change the world, one person at a time." Mark sees a direct line between the moral code of our 4-Way Test and his philosophy, especially, the third question "Will it build goodwill and better friendships?"
