Rotary welcomes District Gov.

RUSHVILLE — In recent Rushville Rotary Club news, District 6560 Governor Craig Sherman along with Assistant District Governor Greg Warner and his wife, Redawna, recently visited town to share Rotary news and recognize two new Paul Harris Fellows.

President Dr. John Williams called the meeting to order. Paul Barada led the Pledge of Allegiance and Jan Dimick offered an invocation.

There was no Mystery Person this week. Brags were suspended and fines were not accessed in order to allow the DG as much time to address club members as possible.

One of the visiting dignitary’s first order of business was to call Paul W. Barada and Kevin Green to the podium and present them with Paul Harris medallions, lapel pins and framed certificates of recognition.

A Rotarian is recognized as a Paul Harris Fellow only after having donated a designated amount of money in support of Rotary programs and efforts.

Dr. John Williams also was recognized as a Paul Harris Fellow + 1 and Dr. Fred Philips was recognized as a Paul Harris Fellow + 6.

Congratulations to these Rotarians for their dedication to the club and Rotary’s efforts to serve man and make the world a better place for all of us.

District Governor Sherman shared information about the theme for this Rotary year, which is “Peace Through Service” and said three keys to the coming months were to grow membership, keep current members engaged and to enhance public awareness of Rotary efforts.

Locally, Rotary provides two scholarships a year to deserving RCHS graduates, hosts a dinner banquet for the top 10 students (based on academics) from each of the four classes at RCHS along with their parents, and has donated to many worthy local causes including the Rush County Senior Center, the Nature Preserve/Outdoor Lab north of the Rushville Elementary Schools, Rush Memorial Hospital and Brian’s Cause.

A prior meeting of the local club guests included Corey Myers (with Nancy Rice) and Jim and Patti Orr (guests of Paul Barada Jr.).

Those paying $1 to boast about something included Dr. Fred Philips, Patti Orr, Jan Dimick and Kathy Dean.

Sergeant-At-Arms Paul Barada Jr. fined only himself, for missing a couple of recent meetings.

Following lunch, Mr. Orr presented an interesting program on blimps and World War II fighter planes as well as the air dock in Akron, Ohio.

Rotary International is an organization of more than 1.2 million men and women in 30,149 clubs throughout the world united and dedicated to the betterment of the community in which they live.

Rotary’s 4-way test of the things we do and say is:

Is it the truth?

Is it fair to all concerned?

Will it build good will and better friendships?

Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

If you’re interested in joining Rotary and doing your part to help make your community and the world a better place to live and work feel free to contact any local Rotarian. He or she will gladly invite you to lunch to see if Rotary is an organization in which you’re interested.
