Changing of the Gavel 2020

This morning, the leadership of the Wallingford Memorial Rotary Club changed during its annual changing of the gavel induction ceremony.

The Wallingford Rotary extends its utmost congratulations and thanks to outgoing President Randell Barclay. During his year presidency, Randell has more than exemplified the motto of Rotary – “service above self” with his work within Rotary. Randell will next be preparing for his role as upcoming District Governor Elect.

We welcomed our new President, Dave Ballou. Dave is no stranger to Rotary, this will be his fourth term as president of our club. Along with Dave, Rotarian Sue Thayer was inducted as President Elect.

Wallingford Rotary extends its best wishes to Dave and Sue as they embark on this new Rotary year, we are sure that they will have wonderful things in store for our little club! Here are some pictures of Dave and Randell who were socially distancing and masked from the Little Red Schoolhouse for the induction ceremony which was held virtually for the rest of the club.
