What a wonderful surprise we had at our meeting yesterday! Donna Lueders made a surprise visit to our club with a couple of additional board members from INK to surprise Jim Stege with a huge hand crafted card made by some of the kids from the FLY program to honor Jim for his service with the INK board. His most recent position was as Vice President of development. Jim will be missed as he retires from his board responsibilities of many years. Jim, thanks for all you have done and continue to do!

It was an honor to be in attendance of our meeting yesterday when current President Jodi Kotrady-Hatin awarded Mr. JB Coomes the Rotarian of The Year Award! This was a unanimous decision among the entire Board. There were many past President’s in the room to help commemorate this event. Mr. Coomes has been a member of our club for 39 years and continues to be an inspiration to all by his positive mentoring attitude. Mr. Coomes graciously accepted the award with his lovely wife Theresa by his side. When Mr. Coomes was asked to say a few words, all he could say was “Service Above Self”! Thank for all you do!Image attachment
