Passing of the Gavel 2021

Posted on September 8, 2021 by under Community, Events.    


I missed our Rotary club social at Stearman Field a couple of weeks ago. I really like Stearman so I was bummed I couldn’t go. The challenge I have is that I teach Aqua Zumba at 5:30 PM on Thursdays at VASA Woodlawn and that’s the same time we generally have a social ever other month. I wish it were easy to find a sub for class but it isn’t and so I end up missing out on things. Thankfully, Stephanie was there to take some pictures.


Norm Duncan, who served as president of our club for about a year and a half, recently left our club because he transferred to the Derby branch of his bank. In July, Cathy Harmon took over but we didn’t have an official “passing of the gavel” event until a couple of weeks ago. It was great to have both Cathy and Norm at the event so that Cathy could present Norm with our gift to recognize him for his service to the club. He served as president during the most challenging time of all. We really struggled to keep the club going this past year.

We couldn’t have Haus of Brews, our premier fundraising event, last year due to COVID so this is the first year that we are once again having it. We’ve resumed meeting in person but it has been a struggle to get members to come to the meetings with almost an entire year of not having them. Attendance continues to improve each week so it’s starting to feel somewhat normal again.


Anyway, everyone is invited to Haus of Brews on September 25 at Treescapes. Early bird tickets are available now for $35 (the price will go up to $50 per person after September 10) so, if you plan to attend, I highly encourage you to buy your ticket right away. Please help us support the Rotary Club of Andover. See you at our event in a couple of weeks. Until then, GNG!
