Changing of the Guard

On June 26,   2014 at Traditions at the Links in East Syracuse, the gavel was passed from District Governor, Dennis Schonewetter to District Governor elect, Deborah Glisson.  Our Camillus Solvay Geddes club had a good representation and as our picture shows Steve Poli passing on the presidential challenge to Cynthia Drake. Our Camillus Solvay Geddes Club repeated the changing of the Guard ceremony at our Club Picnic held at the Erie Canal tow Path Park in Camillus on June 30th.

This past year was filled with changes and accomplishments.  We took on the combining of the Camillus Rotary club with the Solvay - Geddes Rotary Club, and the change to our meeting place to the Copper Top Restaurant on Milton Ave and day of meetings to Mondays. We set in motion the plans to establish an interact club and distributed seven scholarships to seniors from four High schools, West Genesee, Solvay Geddes, West Hill and Bishop Ludden. We thank Steve for his leadership and continued dedication to our Rotary principles,” Service Above Self”.

Cynthia will be challenged to carry out the new Rotary theme of “Light Up Rotary” and shine the light on Camillus, Solvay, Geddes Rotary’s service to their community. We pledge our support to assist Cynthia in making the New Year a success and continue the growth and good works of our club.
