Our speaker June 26, 2017 is Michael J Dill.  As an Award Winning Certified Business Coach, Michael’s commitment and passion is to be a source of strength and empowerment for his clients to get them to reach farther than they thought they were capable of reaching on their own.
 
Michael Dill was born in Providence, Rhode Island in 1958 and moved to Broward County, Florida in 1981. He has been married for 25 years and has two children.

Michael serves as a member of the Florida Speakers Association, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to the growth and development of the speaking profession.  Michael Dill brings more than 35 years of business experience to his leadership speaking, team training and mentoring practice.
 
2017-18 Club President Lee Barnard was the featured officer at the Officer Installation Dinner June 19, 2017 at Piccolinos Italian Restaurant, 170 W Camino Real, Boca Raton, when he became our club President for 2017-18. 
 
Additional officers installed by District 6930 Governor Eric Gordon include: President Nominee Ana Londono will become President Elect; Treasurer Fred Licata will continue as Treasurer; Secretary Jerry Leitherer will continue as Secretary; Vice President John Ross will become Executive Secretary (updated title for position); although unable to be present, President Mathieu Daquin will become Immediate Past President and Foundation Chair.
 
Promising to provide our club leadership for the ensuing year, Lee offered significant encouragement  to continue current projects and develop membership.  He reminded us of our strong fellowship and the mighty accomplishments our club has made in the past, then Lee excited us into committing support for a favored project for the coming year: to support a Gift of Life International child.  The Gift of Life program is focused on healing little hearts around the world.
 
The project provides hope to children with heart disease from developing countries, regardless of their gender, creed, or national origin.  With approximately 1.3 million children born each year having a heart defect and knowing that 93% do not have access to cardiac care, the goal is to make this lifesaving care available to children everywhere.
 
Honoring our club and officers on behalf of Rotary Downtown Boca Raton was President Elect Penny Morey who will be installed as club president Friday June 23, 2017, 6:30 pm at Boca Sound Club.
 
Other spouses and guests included: Angela and Stephanie Barnard, Maxine Ross, Naheed Kahn, Beverley Leitherer, Denise Falabella, and Cyndee Bromberg.
Club President Mathieu Daquin reviewed the club activities and accomplishments through the past Rotary year 2016-17.  To assist in recalling the year, we have prepared a web page on our web site with stories from our weekly bulletins and a brief gallery of some of the pictures captured during the year.  Please tap this web site reference for a trip down memory lane.
 
A rotating slide presentation of pictures from events was displayed  on our portable screen as President Mathieu reviewed events and honored the club members who served, introducing each and commenting on their contribution.  This was a grand demonstration of full participation as Mathieu thanked each member highlighting their major contributions. 
 
When he came to our Program Chair Joseph, Mathieu announced that the club would provide $750 toward Joseph's trip to the RI convention in Atlanta, GA.  This will be a fine complement to the additional fortune Joseph received for holding the winning ticket of our 50/50 fund.  Enjoy the convention Joe!
