July 1 marks the beginning of a new Rotary Year, and with it new leadership. At a well attended induction dinner on June 29, Rotary District 6440 Assistant Governor Mary Bak installed Tom Nash as the 93rd President of the Rotary Club of Winnetka-Northfield.  Our entire club is joined by thousands of Rotarians in District 6440 and around the world in thanking outgoing President Patti Van Cleave for her tremendous leadership over the past year and pledge our support to Tom, District Governor Don Brewer and Rotary International President Ian Riseley. 
Also at the dinner, special recognitions were given to our club's 4 Paul Harris Society members- Sam Badger, David Birkenstein, Rich Lalley and Fred Schwimmer. Paul Harris Society members contribute at least $1,000 per year to The Rotary Foundation, one of world's most respected and admired charitable foundations. The Foundation fosters world understanding and peace through international humanitarian, educational, and cultural exchange programs. The Rotary Foundation transforms contributions into service projects that change lives close to home and around the world.
