The Rotary Club of Newton held it's annual Installation Dinner on Tuesday, June 20th at the home of incoming president Susan Peghiny.  It was a lovely evening filled with good food and better fellowship.
We were delighted to induct Jodi Goodman into membership that evening, and incoming District Governor Karin Gaffney was on hand to do the honors (with an assist by Susan and her dog Lou):
We also thanked outgoing president Paul Sullivan, and recognized the past presidents in attendance (l-r): Justin Salaway, incoming president Susan Peghiny, Marie Presti, Paul Sullivan (with plaque), Indira Desai, Dick Bowen and Paul Kerrissey:
Karin then installed Susan as the 92nd president of The Rotary Club of Newton (with Lou ensuring she did it correctly):
Finally, the incoming Board of Directors "Passed the Gavel" in a symbolic handing over of power to the new president.  Pictured r-l are: DG Karin Gaffney, Andy Willinger (Treasurer), Chris Chu (Director),  Rae Mintz (Director), Jodi Goodman (Sargent-at-Arms), Susan Paley (Director), Maureen Grannan (Director), outgoing president Paul Sullivan and incoming president Susan Peghiny.  Paul looks pretty happy, doesn't he?
