The Drumheller Rotary Club held an important meeting recently as they chose the executive for the coming year.
Stacey Gallagher will take over the job of local Rotary president next July 1 from current president Ian Cassels.
"Somebody said 'you should do it' and I said 'oh, okay," she confided to 99.5 Drum FM. "I said if anybody else wants to, please feel free to raise your hand and nobody else did."
Just because she's taking over the top spot on the Rotary executive, Gallagher doesn't plan to reinvent club initiatives that already work.
"We'll have the White Elephant Sale and the Celebration of Excellence, the same things that we do every year," she outlined. "We're talking about doing the Big Ball Bounce again for a fundraiser; it was fun, lots of ball counting, that's for sure."
"Obviously, we have a budget and we have to stay within our budget every year, but we're always looking for something big," she added. "We're considering a future project, so trying to sock away money for something in the future maybe."
The Drumheller Rotary Club has funded a number of community projects around the town, including the splash park and clock beside the fountain in the aptly named Rotary Park.
The other Rotary executives for 2018 are vice-president Brent Pedersen, president-elect (2019) Bev Krabsen, treasurer Vicki Wilton and secretary Tania Johnson.
