Steve Slyce, a manager at Peters Billiards and an Excelsior resident, was recently named president of the Edina Rotary after more than a decade of service.
“Belonging to Rotary enables me to help make a difference in both World Wide issues like eradicating Polio and the many at home issues like literacy and education," Slyce said in a statement. "Also, the many members that I have made lifelong friendships with are a very valuable part.”
Slyce, an Edina Rotarian since 2001, has chaired the service organization's annual fundraising event, its annual picnic and its Model UN and fun drive programs.
The Edina Rotary dates to 1957 and, with more than 150 members, is one of the largest Rotaries in the Twin Cities.
Slyce started his one-year term as president in July, replacing Scott MacDonald. Jeff Ohe will start his term in July 2014.
