It was a festive evening under the chairmanship of John Murphy at the handsome, redone Doubletree Hotel in Monrovia.
The cocktail reception was held poolside, followed by a delicious dinner inside.
Highlight of the evening was the installation of Imy Dulake, a Korean immigrant who has risen from an impoverished childhood in Korea to a vice president of banking in Beverly Hills, and now enjoys a successful career with Coldwell Banker Real Estate.
She has been named as one of the top one percent of sales agents internationally.
Imy appreciates Rotary and everything they stand for. She has never forgotten her roots and strives to give back to her community.
She was installed by Laura Freedman the first woman president in Arcadia Rotary (1995-96) and gave several digs to the membership in taking 14 years to elect the second.
Awards presented were: Youth to Randall Fowler, New Member to Jack Pan, Community Service to Sho Tay, The Michler Rotarian to Mike Real. A special presentation was made to Frank Perini, the club photographer, with a perfect 50 year record. Congratulations to the new officers of Arcadia Rotary.
