HERBERT L. HARRISS President 2005-2006 89th President of the Rotary Club of Charlotte

Catherine summarized some of the challenges the Board has levied on Herb Harriss and his team for the next year, including promotion of wearing of the Rotary pin, having a place for members to display their company information, having members as speakers, and including new members at the head table.
Catherine turned over the "big gavel" to Herb to help him control the club meetings and Powell Majors, club president in 1946-47, placed the president's pin on Herb and the past president's pin on Catherine.
Herb presented Catherine with a beautiful bracelet and his thanks for her leadership.
New President Herb introduced his wife, Karen, and special guests Bill McMillan, past president of the Rotary Club of Charlotte West, Forest Pierce, also past president of the Rotary Club of Charlotte West, and Tony Grimes, of Jacksonville, Florida.
Herb reported on what he had learned about Rotary at the Centennial International Convention in Chicago: Rotarians like to have fun (ask him about the origins of the 4-Way Test), that Rotary is very international, and that Rotary is about service. He pledged an active and busy year around those themes and adjourned the meeting.
