Immediate Past President Tim Hartley was recognized for his service to the Rotary this past year, and passed the gavel to Rotarian David Loftis, who will serve as the club’s 2018-2019 president. Loftis said the theme of Rotary in the coming year, “Be the Inspiration,” will challenge Rotarians to become more involved in the community and set an example of selfless service to others.

“We’ve got a great club here and a lot of strong members, but we could certainly do more in the community and I’d like that to be our goal this year,” Loftis said. “We do a lot of great things each year, but let’s really strive to expand on what we’re going to do this year and show the community how great the Rotary truly is.”

The Rotary also welcomed a new member to its club in Matthew DeFrance, district executive of the East Trinity Trails District which serves the Scouting communities of Heath, Lavon, Nevada, Rockwall, and Royse City.
