Theme – Family of Rotary
A number of Red Rock members attended the All Clubs Meeting on 10/20/14 to do some networking with Rotarians from other clubs in Washington County.
Biff, the incoming president of DSU, gave a presentation on his vision of St George becoming a university town and DSU being an integral part of the community – our club can attest that having a university in St George is awesome – we used their volunteer group for the Shivwitz project and it made our work a lot easier.
Horse Play – Frank entertained us all and led a great banter between members.
Presentation – vocational presentation by Mike Empey
Mike talked about his 24 years on Ogden police force rising from young recruit to chief of police. As some of us knew Ogden was a hotbed of hooliganism – drinking, thieving, prostitution and murders – not something you would think of a Utah town.
Then Mike talked about his second career as mayor of Leeds and his third career as congressional staffer for Congressman Matheson – both of these are thankless jobs – no matter what you do, somebody does not like you for it. Only somebody of Mike’s demeanor (a very calm, level headed gentleman could handle these jobs with the steady hand).
Our hat is off to Mike for a great career and a well-deserved retirement
- October 24/25, Friday (12pm-7pm)/Saturday (10am-5pm), Red Rock Rotary booth at Spookytown/Taste of Dixie - come dressed in a Halloween costume
Members that were not there, we missed you.
Those of you not yet members of our club - you are missing out on being a contributor to a better place to live locally and globally. Come join us and find food for your soul through volunteer activities.
