One Can Make a Difference - President’s Rose – Phil Rossy

Phil was introduced to our club in 2000 by Steve Moore, and has supported many committees since then. He is a strong supporter of our community, and practices positive networking, always promoting Kiwanis. When he chaired Interclub for 2 consecutive years in ’01 he personally attended many of the Interclub meetings with other Kiwanis Clubs. He Chaired our Bon Appetit Silent Auction Committee in 2003-04 a very successful event raising almost $30,000 for the Club. In addition to canvassing for auction items, and attending the committee meetings, he worked all day setting up for the Auction, then they worked the event, and, they cleaned up after the event. In 2004-05 he was elected to serve as a Director on our Board, and was elected this year to serve as Vice-President of the Board, and is responsible for guiding the Fundraising Committees. He provides valuable input on our discussions and contributes to our brainstorming sessions. This year, with a little nudge,,, he agreed to be Co-Chair of the Bon Appetit Committee, working alongside Bruno DiChiara. He will need your support to make this project a success, as the donated items mostly come from our members and their contacts. Thank you Phil, for helping us to Make A Difference!
