Another Rotary round

Due to a sudden job transfer, our brand-new Eagan Rotary Club president, Mike, had to resign. I received the Rotary Club of Eagan's charter certificate as the new club president for a second time. My office assistant, Olivia, helped me hold the framed piece of history at our Achievement Financial office.
