GAINES – The Albion Rotary Club, now in its 91st year, marked the “changing of the guard” tonight with a new president and other leaders sworn in.

Cindy Perry is the new president, succeeding Kelly Kiebala. Perry works as the director of health education, wellness and outreach for Orleans Community Health. The Waterport resident has been a member of Rotary since 1999 and spearheads the club’s annual golf tournament, which is scheduled for July 18 this year.

Kiebala joined the club in 2007, back when she was president of the Orleans County Chamber of Commerce. The Medina resident is the executive director of the Genesee-Orleans Regional Arts Council, based in Batavia.

She was praised for her continued commitment to the Albion Club. The Rotary Club uses money raised from the golf tournament, a fishing derby, St. Patrick’s ham dinner, hot dog booth and other fund-raisers to give scholarships and support other community causes.

Kelly Kiebala is presented with a Paul Harris Fellow in recognition for her year of service as Albion Rotary Club president. Ed Fancher, a past president, presents the award to Kiebala during a meeting tonight at The Village Inn.
