President’s Letter – June 15, 2017

Dear Esteemed Rotarians:

We had another great Friday with past-president Bill Dutton directing (president 2007). Das Williams was a good speaker who seemed to keep the interest of the members and generate many questions. Bill mentioned our next Guatemala trip, which we will continue to promote in the coming months.

This week we look forward to our speaker DAVID RADER, who will speak about President Theodore Roosevelt. David Rader teaches for academia, business, government, and the military. He has taught as an adjunct instructor for more than twenty-five colleges and universities in the U.S. and abroad. At our meeting, he will speak on the subject of “Theodore Roosevelt: American President/Global Leader.”
Rader admits that he could talk for hours about the exploits and accomplishments of Teddy Roosevelt, the first U.S. President to win the Nobel Peace Prize and the Congressional Medal of Honor. He was a man who endured much personal tragedy (his first wife and his mother both died on the same day), a war hero, governor, cowboy, explorer, conservationist, champion of the working-man, and one of America’s most beloved public figures. We can look forward to a very informative and inspiring time this Friday. It is a wonderful opportunity to bring a guest. I personally commit to bring at least two guests. See you all Friday.

Please note in your calendars our 2017 president step down, June 30 at the Double Tree, to include an evening reception and dinner.

Warm regards,
James N. Stretchberry
President 2016-17
