An annual rite of Rotary, the Presidential Changeover, took place Thursday evening when President Andy Leyhane figuratively passed the torch to Phil Kellerman for the 2019-20 Rotary Year that begins July 1.
Witnessing the peaceful transfer of power were Jim Leyhane, event host and Andy’s father, President-elect Dick Drumm (who will move up for the 2020-21 Rotary Year), Board members Bill Dowd and Pat Bailey, April Dowd, Dean Calamaras, Doris Calamaras, Kevin Leyhane, Carol Orvis, Ray Hannan, Charlie Foote, and a large variety of adult and smaller friends and relatives.
This was the final SRC event of the Rotary Year. After a week off to mark the July 4th holiday, we’ll begin the annual “SRC Summer Casual Calendar.” First up will be a private-room dinner and chatfest at 6 p.m. Thursday, July 11, at the Schodack Diner, 1842 Columbia Turnpike. Reservations, priced at $15 per person or $25 per couple, should be reserved no later than July 4 by emailing Ray Hannan at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling Ray or Lois at 585-315-1385.
