Del Mar-Solana Beach Sunrise Rotary holds ‘riotous’ Demotion Party

The Del Mar – Solana Beach Sunrise Rotary (DMSB Rotary) celebrated the end of current President Richard Fogg’s term with a riotous Demotion Party at the home of Hakan and Lisa Sakul in Carlsbad on June 11.

A gourmet Moroccan-themed dinner, arranged by Social Chairperson Roseann Jones, was followed by a friendly roast of Richard Fogg’s presidency, led by president elect Steve Weitzen and supported by Rotarian Kevin Cahill in poking fun at Richard’s many absences and his inability to keep track of the presidential gavel all year.

In a humorous skit Kevin, supported by George Sousa and Zoran, dressed up in uniforms, delivered a securely fastened and seemingly invincible steel bank safe box to Richard which turned out to contain… the missing gavel!

The hilarious proceedings ended with Richard thanking his fellow Rotarians for their support throughout the year. He also singled out and recognized a few members that had made significant contributions to the club last year in terms of outstanding service in a particular field. He concluded by welcoming Steve Weitzen as the incoming president of DMSB Rotary club for 2012 – 2013.
