Ken Boggs is a retired Colonel from the United States Army.  He is a graduate of the prestigious Army Ranger School, as well as a proud former paratrooper of the 82nd Airborne Division.  During his 23-year Army career, he spent almost 3 years in Afghanistan and Iraq and commanded units with over 2,000 Soldiers.  He is the recipient of the Army’s highest peacetime award, the Soldier’s Medal, as well as the Legion of Merit, Bronze Star and other awards.

In addition to attending a committee meeting, doing an online make-up, or visiting another Rotary Club you can now get one meeting credit for every new member prospect/guest you bring to a regular Monday meeting. The credit will apply during the same quarter in which you bring the potential member/guest. This is a great way to both make up attendance and recruit new members into our club.
