Meet our 2019-2020
 Club President
Arthur P. Ward, Jr. 
Happy Rotary New Year! It is an honor and privilege to have been elected to serve as your 2019-2020 President.  I look forward to working with all of you as we embark on a new year and exciting time for our club.  
On behalf of the membership, officers and board of directors, I congratulate our 2018-2019 President Bryan D. Schauer on an exceptional Rotary year. Under Bryan’s leadership our club membership grew tremendously. We added members that immediately became engaged in the club. He also initiated the efforts in the development of a strategic plan that we will be rolled out later this fall.  Bryan was an inspiration for change in our club and he delivered.  Thank you, Bryan, we look forward to your continued leadership in this club for many years to come. 
Rotary International President Mark Daniel Maloney selected the 2019-2020 theme Rotary Connects the World.   Our club is a connecting the world.  We are kicking off this Rotary year connecting with the Solon Club in our support of the Thea Bowman Center.  We will connect our members to each other more this year through increased communication from and between our committees.  We are connecting internationally with our work in Malawi and Belize.  We are connecting with our community through diverse service projects around the city. The work we do is extensive, and we will need more members to continue to handle the projects of our club.
Yours in Rotary Service,
Art Ward
2019-2020 President
