Dear Rotarians and Friends of the Rotary Club of Boca Raton,
I am honored to serve as president of the Rotary Club of Boca Raton for the 2023-2024 year! I look forward to following the energy and accomplishments of our immediate past president and friend Jeff Tromberg. This whole process happened very fast, and I couldn’t have done it without the assistance of many fellow Rotarians.
I was so delighted at the support and enthusiasm at my installation on June 28th and I will never forget it. I flew in my mother for the occasion, and she was so impressed with our club! It was her very first Rotary meeting. My thanks to many former club presidents and especially the ones that are active within our club who have helped to guide me. In no special order: Ken Davis, Dr. Dennis Frisch (who served twice), Rachel Huerta, Vanessa Havener, Gary Hildebrand, Bill Riddick, Neil Saffer, Spencer Seigel, Julie Vianale, and Rick Zimmer.
I am very excited to be a part of the Fund Board and having that be more of a priority going forward. I look forward to the 2024 OPAL led once again by the great team of Jan Savarick, Neil Saffer and Spencer Siegel. The OPAL army ensures great success, and I am excited for January 13th, 2024, at Boca West Country Club. I am also excited to be working with Chris Maners on the very popular Future Stars performing arts competition. Last but certainly not least I am fired up for the very first ever Rotary Club of Boca Raton and Boca Helping Hands Car Show!
On an ongoing basis, I am grateful for Claudia DuBois, Pay McCarthy, and Chris Maners for keeping our meetings running like a well-oiled machine. Should you have any ideas for meetings, please let me or Todd Halls know.
My motto going forward for this upcoming year is “Membership, Mentorship, Motivation and Momentum”. I appreciate your service!
