  • We had an exciting day with a guest-turned-Golden Rotarian.  Welcome Ken Boggs to the group and enjoy the Red Badge Journey.  We are rooting for you!
  • A returning guest was Todd Heskett, a Managing Partner with Watermarq Consulting.  Todd has applied for membership, has been approved by the Board and is pending before members of Golden Rotary.  Once this has been done, Todd will be inducted and will become part of our group of change agents, making a difference in the lives of so many people locally and internationally.
  • Attending for his first visit was John Puma, a real estate professional with LIV Sotheby’s International Realty.  He was a guest of Golden Rotarian Hassan Najjar and is a board member of Foothills Art Center.
