The Rotary Club of Charleston installed the leadership team for its Centennial Year, with long-time Rotarian Sandy Morckel being sworn in as president, taking the torch from past president Alex Dallis. Assistant District Governor Rob Rosol did the swearing in honors.
The meeting was used to reflect on a very sucessful year which saw a wide range of service projects implemented in the Charleston community by the 150-member club. Newly appointed President Morckel then gave a preview of plans for her adminstration, which will focus on a year-long celebration of the Club’s 100th Anniversary.
