Here is a note Jennifer Jones had posted on Facebook on July 1, as she stepped down as RI president, giving way to Gordon McInally:
And just like that, my year as RI President is over. Thank you for trusting me to lead the 2022–23 Rotary year. I couldn’t imagine passing the torch to anyone but Gordon McInally.
Many would say this moment is bittersweet, but it isn’t bitter at all, only sweet. I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished this year. Together, we imagined a caring, compassionate, and more equitable world. I’m optimistic we’ve achieved all we set out to do. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your efforts to Imagine Rotary.
Here’s to creating hope in the world!
