Rotary Club Crab Race Turns Republican

One of the unexpected events at RivahFest was a flow of political candidates appearing at various locations throughout the festival including a stop at the Rotary Crab Race....  Rob Wittman in track #4, first district congressman won his Rotary Crab Race against Virginia Attorney General and candidate for Republican Governor Ken Cuccinelli in track #3, beating Keith Hodges in track #2 to the finish line, Virginia's 98th District representative. Also attending was Bishop E W Jackson, the Republican candidate for Lieutenant Governor. Race control was by Shep Lewis (left) and Wayne Wessel (right) who maintained an impartial non-partisan arena.

John Lewis Chauffeur Extraordinary!!

John took his ultra sized golf cart to RivahFest and became the Rotary Shuttle service throughout the festival helping older folks, infirm, vip's, exhausted and handicapped visitors move around the 3 x 5 controlled access zone. Great publicity and many positive comments from the public made this a high profile exposure for the club.... well done John - one of your last great deeds as departing President
