Morrisville Rotary update

On June 19th, the Morrisville-Yardley Area Rotary Club held its annual Passing of the Gavel ceremony, welcoming the club’s new President and Board Officers for the 2016-17 Rotary year. Outgoing President Claude Magnani, who guided the Club through a successful 2015-16, passed the gavel to Bill Pepitone, a retired New York City police officer and current Councilman in Morrisville Borough.

Bill spoke about the direction he and his fellow Rotarians would be taking as the Club moves forward into the new year.

“We want to bring in new people with fresh ideas, people who are invested in the future of their community and their world,” he said. “We will honor Rotary’s great tradition while also welcoming in a new and exciting future.”

The new President was accompanied at the ceremony by his wife Jo Anne, a Montgomery County Police Sergeant, and two of their three daughters.
