PICAYUNE — Picayune Rotary Club installed their officers for 2013-2014 in a ceremony held at Hide-A-Way Lake Lodge on Thursday, June 27th.
The service club is made up of business and community leaders who distribute encyclopedias to local school children, etiquette classes, Christmas baskets to the needy, youth outreach programs and scholarships. This past year, the club began what will become an annual student art show in which students from La. and the Gulf Coast also participated.
Officers for new term are: President, Mark Herring; Past President, Jim Luke; Treasurer, Dawn Lambert; Secretary, Debbie Sharff; and Sergeant at Arms, Gerald Cruthird.
Outgoing President Luke told the group, “I have served as president of many boards and organizations but serving as president of the Rotary has been the most rewarding. The fellowship with the professional men and women of rotary while serving our community has been a true blessing.”
