COVINGTON — Tuesday, July 25, marked the first day of a new Rotary year for the Rotary Club of Covington, as the 2018-19 board of directors was thanked for their service and the 2019-20 board was sworn into office.

Keith Adams of Snapping Shoals welcomed members for his final meeting as Rotary Club of Covington’s president. During the meeting he individually recognized all of the members with perfect attendance for the year and then announced the 2018-19 Rotarian of the Year.

Joe Davidson of PC After Dark was recognized as this year’s Rotarian of the Year.

“If I could clone this Rotarian, I would,” Adams said. “Without him, things would not get done in this club.”

Then, to turn over a new year, John King, Covington Airport director, was sworn in as the new club president.
