President Dennis is Shelved
     Our annual tradition of the Order of Shelf was revised this year and instead of "roasting" the incoming President, outgoing President Dennis was roasted, much to the delight of incoming President Hannah Warren.  Dennis was roasted and toasted by his friend of 45 years, Pete Rundquist, Past President Alan Gibby and some "friends" from Emmanuel Episcopal Church.  We are proud and grateful for Dennis who led us through the very unusual experience of Covid mitigation and Rotary Zoom Meetings.  Dennis kept our club alive and thriving with 14 months of qweekly Zoom meetings and now hybrid - both in person and zoom meetings.
     Dennis shared heart-felt gratitude for the opportunity to serve our Club President and to realize more fully what significant service is provided locally and throughout the world by Rotarians.
Dennis wore his Rotary International 2020-21 Theme Banner home as a fond farewell.
     Great Job, Dennis!  This year was inspiring, weird and fun.  We all "Thank You" with gratitude!
     Our incoming Club President Hannah Warren, made a few remarks following her introduction as our 110th Rockford Rotary Club President.  She was welcomed by Rotarians and one loud clap of divine thunder, a good chance that someone's watch out for her....
