Waller, of Columbus, is vice president and partner of Brickyard Properties. He and his wife, Lucy Anne, are members of the Rotary Club of Columbus.

Walker discussed district-sponsored events and activities, including a service trip to Mexico next spring in partnership with the organization Heart 2 Heart, and the Rotary Multi-District Conference, which will be June 7-10 in Biloxi. Rotary International’s 2018 convention will be June 23-27 in Toronto.

Walker also discussed supporting and increasing gifts to the Rotary Foundation, which is one of the highest-rated non-profits in the world. He encouraged the club to commit funds toward the eradication of polio globally and work toward earning a Rotary Citation.

Additionally, Walker challenged the club to help achieve one of RI President Ian Riseley’s goals of making a difference by planting a tree for each member by April 22, which is Earth Day.
