The traditional President's Night event was held at Cedar Creek Park. The Club applauded Tom's leadership during a year where COVID halted regular fund raising and meetings. In spite of the challenges the BV Rotary continued to meet by ZOOM and was still able to fund scholarships, support various food programs, and sponsored families during the Christmas season. They also conducted a successful blood drive and major tire cleanup on the Yough River in addition to contributing to Rotary International projects.
Incoming President Josh Yoskosky expressed his commitment to a year of continuing programs and new projects as well. Carlos Romero will serve as the next in command and will serve as President beginning July of 2022.
Club member Sam Cover and wife Sandy arranged the President's Night and entertainment was provided by Clinton Van Gemert.
