LUNCH: Susan Cherry, Rotary District Governor
MEETING @ Holy Family: District 7850 Governor Update on Regional Activity and Goals

This annual visit by District 7850 Governor is a moment where the Rotary Club of Essex connects with larger District efforts.   Susan Cherry is clearly busy in her Rotary and "non-Rotary" life, as her bio below suggests.  She is a member of the St. Johnsbury Rotary Club and runs a Bed and Breakfast.  We have to wonder what is for Breakfast on days Susan is one the road for Rotary.  Thank you, Susan for sharing your vision today.
