Mars Hill news and notes – Week of August 12, 2019

The Mars Hill Rotary Club met on Tuesday, Aug. 6.

District Governor Noel Eustace from New Brunswick was the guest speaker.  He quoted many things that are important in history that happened over the years on April 26, which was the day in 1957 that the Mars Hill Rotary Club began.   

He thanked the club for the many contributions they have made to their community.  He encouraged them to “Dare to be the Difference” in the community. It’s OK to promote what you do, he said, not for acknowledgement, but to let others in the community and the region to know what Rotary does.  

He updated the members about the upcoming district conference in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Sept. 27 and 28, and who the keynote speakers would be.

To close the meeting, he inducted new Rotarian Tammy Hunter to the Mars Hill Club.  The assistant district governor, Cliff Rhoma, and his wife from the Limestone club were also in attendance.
