A Celebration of Vanessa’s Presidential Year
The Rotary Club of Arcata Sunrise met on June 30, 2023 to celebrate the Rotary Year that was just ending, and more specifically to honor our outgoing and outstanding Club President for that year – Vanessa Griffin!
The video below is lightly edited, but there were a great many Rotarians who let Vanessa know how much she means to them.
Please note: when you get to the song, Your Editor/Videographer forgot to re-frame the shot before stepping up to the microphone, which left our Horn Section (trumpeters Rebecca Crow and John Gullam) completely out of the shot. But please trust me – you can hear them!
The evening wrapped up with Vanessa responding to the accolades and wishing 2023-2024 Club President John Gullam all the best.
