New Rotary president takes over

Blake Thompson (left), new president of the Washington Rotary Club, takes the gavel from outgoing president Buddy Lindsey during a brief “change-ofcommand” ceremony at last Thursday’s regular meeting of the club. Thompson told members that among his goals as president are membership growth and a focus on local projects as well and Rotary International’s district and international projects. The theme for all Rotary clubs for the 2010-2011 year is “Building Communities, Bridging Continents.” Thompson said he knows his year as president will be “a challenge,” and he called on all members to take a hands-on approach to further strengthen the club.
