Changing of the Guard
"Championships are won on the bus," said Incoming Oconomowoc Rotary President Kevin Pehler
 
Rotarians gathered on a golden evening at Trinity Barn to bid farewell to President Angie Bolson and say howdy to incoming President Kevin Pehler. About 50 folks toured the outbuildings and rolling grounds, used the silo restrooms, dined on delicious barbecue, and galloped up to the log bar. “Championships are won on the bus,” Pehler told his new team. “I want to make people feel good about Rotary…You guys are my family.” Pehler will use social media, photography and video to promote the organization, created an Instagram account, will work to increase awareness for fund-raising efforts, and will passionately uphold Rotarians in their mission of world and community service.
