The Seaside Rotary Club held their annual banquet and installation of officers for the 2016-17 year at the Astoria Golf & Country Club on June 17. Seventy Rotarians and family members participated in the evening festivities. District 5100 Governor Barb Crozier and District Governor-elect Tom Markos were also in attendance to support the leadership of the club and to acknowledge that the Rotary Club of Seaside received three awards, including a special Rotary International award to Stewart Martin. Three awards is very significant as there are 73 Rotary clubs in District 5100.
The Seaside Rotary club will be celebrating its 70th year in 2017, and meets each Thursday at noon at the Best Western Ocean View in Seaside. Guests are always welcome to attend the lunch meeting which also has guest speakers and programs each week.
