January 12th Program
Vocational Talk - Eric Moe
Eric with his wife Christy, son and daughter-in-law Philip 
and Michelle and grandsons, Callen and Beckett.
     Vocational talks are important to our Club.  These talks give our members a chance to get to know more about each other. The subject of the talks are the choice of the member giving the program.  The talk can be about a specific project or career subject.  It can be a comprehensive look at what made that person who they are today, or an interest or passion the member has.  The sky is the limit.
     Eric will talk about his life and his career.  Eri lives outside Winnebago with his wife Christy.  They have been married for 35 years.  He is and has been a Civil Engineer for IMEG Corporation for 33 years.  He as born in England and was raised as the son of a Lutheran Pastor and Registered Nurse.  He enjoys many outdoor activities and looks forward to telling the Club more about his work, interests and family.
     This will be the first of our 2nd Thursday vocational/service project meetings.
     We would encourage our members to invite a guest to join us in person at Memorial Hall or via zoom.  Obviously, President Eric will introduce the presenter and act as Rotary host.

Wesley Willows - New Member
New Member - "Chip" Chapdelaine
     At the Wesley Willows Satellite Club meeting on 12/27/22, Dick Leighton welcomed a new member, Roland "Chip" Chapdelaine.  If the name sounds familiar, it is because Chip served as the third President of Rock Valley College from 1997 to 2004.  Under his leadership, a facilities master plan was developed to guide the future growth of the campus. Approved by the Board of Trustees in 1999, the plan looked 25 years into the future. Among the projects completed were impressive enhancements to the Bengt Sjostrom Theatre, a new Support Services Building, and remodeling of the Student Center. The projects enhanced a campus already recognized as one of the most beautiful in the state.
     Welcome to Rockford Rotary, Chip.
