CRESTVIEW — The Crestview Rotary Club has its largest class of new members in recent history and a new slate of officers.
At the club’s June 25 meeting, assistant district governor John Blair, a Crestview club member, swore in the organization’s new president, Hub City Smokehouse owner Mike Carroll.
“I have some really big shoes to fill,” Carroll said, acknowledging past president Don Turner's accomplishments.
Under Turner’s administration, the Crestview Rotary established a student Interact Club at Crestview High School, and won the Rotary Zone 34 Public Image Award.
The zone encompasses the entire southern U.S. and the Caribbean, Blair said.
Joining Carroll on the new club board are directors Bill Barnhill, Larry Ward and Chad Wilkinson; treasurer Kim Day-Scheid, sergeant-at-arms Ronnie Lunsford, secretary Pat Hollarn and president elect Allyson Oury.
“To the past board, thank you,” Carroll said. “To the new board: Roll your sleeves up. We have a lot of work to do.”
The local Rotary’s next project will be the annual September distribution of free dictionaries in north county schools.
