Thanks to Kierstan Peck for inviting Father Troy Richmond of St. James Church to regale us with his parting thoughts on Washington, St. James Church, and his ministries in the community.

In Father Troy's time at St. James Church, a church building expansion was completed, and significant modernizations and renovations were made to the sanctuary.

At the end of June, Fr. Troy will leave for a call in Muscatine.

Being a Rotarian isn't just about coming to the weekly club meeting on Thursdays. Its about serving. And we've been busy with all sort of service opportunities. Last Saturday, a gaggle of Rotarians helped the Washington Tree Committee with planting trees around the Washington County Hospital and at All American Care on Polk Street, as well as helping with the annual tree giveaway on the Square. 

Thanks to Scott Lujan, John Thorne, Dick Colby, Paul Horak, Jim Mostek, Ed Raber, Ed Lins, Craig Davis, and maybe a few more.
