Greece Rotary Club held the 59th Annual Installation Dinner on June 1, 2018, with current President Chuck Gannon passing the gavel to President Elect Andy Gray.

Retiring Board members were thanked for their service and the newly elected Board members were welcomed. In front of over 70 Rotarians and guests, three very special awards were presented.

Dan Barletta was named Rotarian of the Year, citing his extensive Club involvement and emphasizing the important role he has played in Foundation growth.

The Community Service Recognition award, given to a non Rotarian community member, was presented to Ralph De Stephano who has been active in Greece Community for many years. Among his many contributions were roles with Greece Chamber, Greece Schools and the School Board and with St Joseph’s Villa (now Villa of Hope).

The third award was the posthumous awarding of a Paul Harris Fellow +4 upgrade to Rotarian Dan Richardson, who passed away this past winter. His widow Carol Richardson accepted the plaque. A perfect evening highlighting friendship, accomplishments and special recognitions set the stage to move from one year to the new.
