Notes from
President Paul

Greetings My Rotary Family!
Thank you for a wonderful year serving as your Rotary Spokane Club 21 President!  This opportunity has inspired me beyond words and I'm so grateful for your encouragement and hard work for making this year truly special and amazing. 

Last week’s roast was great fun and of course at the heart of the program was to see all that we accomplished together.  We touched the lives of so many in our community and around the world.  We are people of action and are truly an example of “Service Above Self!” 

There are so many individuals to thank and rather than list the dozens and dozens of members that should be recognized personally I will give them one BIG THANK YOU!  

Of course, I want to specifically thank our Executive Committee, Jennifer Thompson, Deb Harper, Gary Stokes, Kyle Weir, and Amy Higgins.  The Board of Directors, John Driscoll, Matt Sonderen, Josh Quisenberry, Joy Drake, John Meekhof, and Rod Price.  

A huge thank you and much credit for our continued success goes to our Executive Directors, Jenna Carroll and Diana Picone!  

Finally, to my wife Beth, for her love, support, and sacrifice of time and encouragement during these leadership years.  Thank you with all my heart for all you do and your generous spirit.

My best wishes to Gary Stokes for his coming presidency and to the new incoming board members, Dave Troyke, Bridget Barrington, and Stefanie Page.  We know you will have an amazing year!  

Enjoy these summer months ahead and stay well my Rotary Club 21 family.
Paul S. Viren
Spokane Rotary Club 21, President
