Ambridge Rotary elected two new co-presidents Carol Miloszewski and Kathy Page, after former president Linda Thomas served the role.
"This Rotary District 7300/7330 Conference epitomized 'fellowship,' the uniting of people who share common goals and passions," Page said.
"For Rotarians that means helping people in a community, whether it be making a meal at the local soup kitchen, planning a project in Appalachia or helping to eradicate Polio around the world. It was a weekend of making new friends, planning new projects and educating the Rotarians of tomorrow."
Ambridge Rotary won Top Ten Club of the year for the following: Youth Service (ranked No. 1); Club of the Year; Community Service; and Club Service.
Miloszewski said the Rotary Conference for Districts 7300 and 7330 was a wonderful collaboration, "bringing us together for new ideas, new friendships, and new beginnings."
"Charlie Batch was one of our speakers. His message of persistence and caring resonated with the audience. He became our newest Paul Harris Fellow for exemplifying our motto of "Service Above Self."
Today is the last day of the Rotary year, and the first time in the club's 93-year history that a District Governor hailed from the Ambridge Club,
Walt Sickles, who served as the Rotary District Governor, said it's has truly been an "adventure" for almost three years and he and his wife, Harriet,
have thoroughly enjoyed it.
"I sincerely want to thank each member of the district and the leadership team who went the extra mile," Sickles said in an e-mail. "We really appreciate your support, accomplishments and enthusiasm."
Beginning on Tuesday, new leaders will take over the reins, including District Governor Herman Dieckmann and his wife, Kay.
Sickles said the Rotary Club also has a new challenge from RI President, Gary Huang, to go out and "Light Up Rotary," in order to make the world a better place for people to live, love and work.
