Albert Ruiz installed as 12th President

Dr. Albert Ruiz was recently installed as the new president of the Kingsville Sunrise Rotary Club.  His plans for the new year include growing the club to at least 150 members and raising $2.5 million for community projects, such as building luxury suites at Javelina Stadium.

The outgoing president, Barbara Oates, commented "Thank goodness this year is over.  It has been the longest twelve months of my life.  Not literally of course.  I know each year is the same length.  I'm not an idiot.  You know what?  Just never mind."
