Rotary Introduces New Officers, Scope of Work
By Robin Loving Rowland and Elena Padilla
The Rotary Club of San Miguel de Allende–Midday has attracted more than US$750,000 over its nine-year life to build water harvesting cisterns for campo communities that lack water, to establish a school for deaf students, to treat the eyes of diabetics, and more. And the new president, Tony Ronci, is intent on continuing to “improve life for folks we might never meet,” by bringing food, education, and peace to those who need it. Ronci has 20 years of experience with Rotary and is beginning his third presidency in two countries.

Ronci was installed in July along with Juan Bernardo Nales (treasurer), Nate Fultz (secretary), Alejandro Guerra (community projects), David McGinnis (membership), and Ivar Schacke (club services).
At the same time, former president Gary Peterson was awarded his second Paul Harris Fellowship for having donated US$1,000 to the Rotary Foundation; member Joe Whitmore was awarded his fifth. The Rotary Foundation is the largest private charity in the world, and supports education and humanitarian service programs all over the globe.
Stepping down from the presidency was Lee Carter, who was touted as epitomizing devotion to ideals of Rotary: goodwill, peace, and understanding. “Our projects and our meetings develop friendships that provide the underpinning for a stronger community,” said Carter.
Rotary meets the most pressing needs of the world by working in the most efficient way to produce sustainable solutions with global impact one precious life at a time. For more information, contact President Tony Ronci at firstname.lastname@example.org.
