Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotarians honor and ‘Demote’ Club President


Members of Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary and family recently honored Dr. Seymour Myers during Rotary’s traditional “demotion” party for its outgoing president.

Incoming president William (Liam) Murphy welcomed all to Brick 15 and served as MC for the event, offering roasts and toasts along the way. Bill Sutton presented Dr. Myers with a special signed memento from club members. After much cheerful back and forth banter, often led by Rotarian Kevin Cahill, Murphy presented Dr. Myers with a plaque and presidential gavel to commemorate his presidential year. Exceptional foods and beverages were provided by Lisa Mandigo and Epic Catering.

During the short formal portion of the party, outgoing president, Dr. Myers, was released from his club duties to return more fully to his family medicine practice with Scripps Health in Solana Beach. Incoming president Liam Murphy accepted the new responsibility to lead DMSB Rotary to even greater accomplishments while he and his wife, Laura, also launch Brick 15, a new coffee house and music venue in Del Mar. Their mission is to provide a forum for established and emerging performers, songwriters, poets and customers to collaborate in a comfortable and rich setting.

Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary consists of business, professional, and civic-minded individuals who meet regularly to hear from interesting speakers and have fun working together on service projects that make our local community and the world better for all. The Club meets for breakfast on Friday mornings at the Del Mar Hilton on Jimmy Durante Blvd. (
