On July 17th, we were honored to have the current District 5810 Governor, Beverly Grogan, in attendance to share her vision for 2019-2020.  We will continue to focus on areas in which we can grow our member engagement, build connections in our community, and work collectively with other local Rotary clubs, District 5810 leadership, and Rotary International to further our mutual goals.  Beverly was then able to meet with our officers to hear about the various projects and programs that Allen Sunrise provides, how the district can help us, and how we can continue to grow into an even stronger organization in the coming year.  Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, let's have fun!
