S. Congressman, Harold Ford, Jr.  RCME again sponsored 7 delegates to the Rotary Youth Leadership Academy at Whispering Woods in Olive Branch.  The Rotaract Club at the University of Memphis and Interact Club at Overton High School continue to be active clubs.  The Holiday Party was held at the home of Norris and Lauren McGehee.  Richard Large was named Rotarian of the Year.  Membership on June 30, 2015 was 135.
