State Senator Ferrell Haile visits Rotary
Posted By Josh Nelson
“It’s like coming home, to be with the Gallatin Rotary Club!”
With these words, State Senator Ferrell Haile opened his warm and well-received conversational remarks to the Gallatin Rotary Club members on Thursday, Jan. 24, 2019.
Gallatin resident Haile, who was recently re-elected as Speaker Pro Tempore of the Tennessee State Senate, shared perspectives from his recent trip to Cuba as Tennessee’s representative in a delegation of high-ranking state officials from several Southeastern United States.
Haile also related his experience and observations from the recent inauguration of Tennessee Governor Bill Lee. “Being asked to introduce newly elected Governor Lee, and being on the same stage with our fellow Sumner Countian, House Majority Leader William Lamberth, was a remarkable experience!” said Haile. “It was something I never dreamed I would someday be doing, when I was growing up with my classmates at Gallatin High School!”
Senator Ferrell Haile, a pharmacist and cattle farmer who previously served as president of both the Gallatin Rotary Club and the Gallatin Morning Rotary Club, is a former co-owner of Perkins Drugs. Senator Haile represents citizens in Sumner and Trousdale Counties, and a section of Davidson County.
The Gallatin Rotary Club, founded in 1923, is Sumner County’s oldest service club. Its members gather weekly at noon on Thursdays, and presently meet at the Gallatin Country Club. In addition to sharing fellowship, Rotary Clubs around the world are dedicated to “Service Above Self,” and are engaged in a number of projects and activities to strengthen their communities, in addition to their worldwide project to eliminate polio. Persons interested in membership are encouraged to visit the Gallatin Rotary Club!
