District Governor Banner Exchange – Paramus Sunrise officially chartered

Two members of the Paramus Sunrise Rotary Club attended the District Governor Banner Exchange at Biagio's on Friday, June 27th, 2008. There, they learned that our club was officially chartered on June 27th, 2008. District Governor Joe Laureni gave hi s last official speech and was inducted into the College of Governors by PRID Ray Wells and PDG Joe Dino. Dominic Jengo was installed as the 52nd Governor of District 7490.Although 4 members of the Paramus Sunrise Rotary Club had intended to attend, Liz Mason and Mayank Ghadia had to cancel at the last minute. That left President Anthony Iacono and Mel Fabrikant to represent our club. One might count John Mosca as a part of our group although he sat at a different table.

During DG Laureni's remarks, he mentioned that our club had been officially chartered as of June 27th and that Bergen Community College had received their certification as well. That makes two new clubs for Laureni's year. One more club, Little Ferry is still trying to fill the requirements.

RI President D K Lee will also be taking office as of July 1st, the beginning of the Rotary year. Each RI President offers a theme for their year. Lee's motto is" Make Dreams Real"
