The July 12 meeting of the Burbank Rotary Club was an exciting and memorable gathering indeed. For not only was it the inaugural meeting of new president Jonathan Taylor (who announced that he was newlywed), but the Invocation was given by his father, Darrell Taylor (president 1989-90), and his grandfather, Glenn Taylor (president 1984-85) led all in the Pledge of Allegiance. Jonathan represents the third generation of Taylor family members to serve as president of the Burbank Noon Rotary in Burbank. Founded in 1926, this is the first time in the club’s history this historic achievement has ever occurred, and such a moment will presumably never take place again.
The entire Taylor family is highly respected within our local Burbank community for their volunteerism and philanthropy. They are each a Paul Harris Fellow and remain dedicated to Rotary’s precept of “Service Above Self.”
Other new Rotary Officers for the 2011-2012 term are Mike Thomas, Vice President, Siranoush Tokatlian, Secretary, Marsha Floyd, Treasurer and Keith Sanneman, Immediate Past President.
