Fred Hartley – New President

At their June 28th meeting, the Rotary Club of Tryon inaugurated Fred Hartley as the Club’s President for 2018-2019.  Adopting the Rotary International theme of  “Be the Inspiration”, Fred challenged Club members to look around the community to find ways that Rotary can inspire Service Above Self.   


Past President Ken Shull and incoming President Fred Hartley started a new tradition this year as they switched the Rotary International Theme banners.  Last year’s theme of “Making a Difference” and  this year’s theme of “Be The Inspiration” are combined to encourage members to make a difference by being the inspiration.  Both themes speak to the purpose of Rotary, an organization that makes a difference in our local community and around the world.

During the inauguration, the incoming President receive a Rotary Club President pin.  Fred received his pin from last years President Ken Shull.
