On Wednesday, June 27th, Christopher “Chris” Evans was sworn-in by AG Kevin Shendok at our last meeting of the year, relieving Veronica Olivo-Goyanes, who served as President during the 2017-2018 Rotary Year.
Chris relocated to Orlando, Florida from Grand Cayman in 2016 with his wife Beth and their two Yorkies. After visiting a few different Rotary Clubs near his home in the Doctor Phillips community, Chris decided to join our Rotary Club of I-Drive and we couldn’t be happier with his decision.
Having served in a number of Club Leadership roles in Cayman, including Club President of the Rotary Club of Grand Cayman, Chris brings not just his perfect attendance over two decades, but also a great amount of knowledge and experience to lead our I-Drive Club.
And in the usual fashion of our Rotary Club of International Drive, after the installation ceremony, we proceeded to “cross the street” to Pointe Orlando and reconvened at The Pub for drinks and fellowship with not just members of our club, but with visiting Rotarians from the newly-formed Rotary Club of Hunters Creek, of whom our club is a sponsor for their chartering.
We wish Club President Chris the very best on his presidency and look forward to seeing our club grow and do great community work in the upcoming months.
