Last Meeting:

District Governor Craig Leiser visited our club to provide an update on district activities and to encourage us to envision bigger, better and bolder projects for our club’s focus.  Craig was introduced by our very own Assistant District Governor Rick Esse and Craig presented our club member Charlie Cogan with special district recognition for his effective efforts on behalf of Rotary.

Craig is a member of the Stillwater Sunrise Club, has been involved in many District committees over the years and has supported many Stillwater area community projects as well.  A native of Cochrane, WI, Craig became passionate about the color orange as a child after successfully giving a presentation in the German language and receiving an orange fruit as a reward!

According to Craig the eradication of polio is still the primary focus of Rotary but many other projects are supported as well including the Fast For Hope emphasis on sustainable development and the focus on addressing adequate water resources worldwide.
