Beaufort County Commissioner Ron Buzzeo was recently installed as the Washington (noon) Rotary Club’s president for its upcoming 2017-18 year, replacing Pam Anderson, who will assume the role of vice president.

Based on Rotary International rules, Washington (noon) Rotary, consisting of 82 members, installs a new board each year. The president, officers and full board were installed during one of this club’s regular meetings at King Chicken’s function room on Monday.

“Many thanks to Pam Anderson for her excellent leadership during the past year. With Pam and all our hardworking volunteers, our club has been able to contribute so much directly into our community,” Buzzeo said. “I’m very happy to be stepping in as president of such a cohesive and productive group.”

Washington (noon) Rotary consists of volunteers within the City of Washington who dedicate their efforts to charitable causes both locally and to those its parent organization subscribes.

Each year, this local group has raised and disbursed funds to local nonprofits through creative fundraising activities. More information can be found at or WashingtonNoonRotary on Facebook.
