Record set for Rotary
Teddy bears and touching moments: (Top) Rotary District Governor Garland Gary Moore, left, is greeted by Covington Club President Doug Bolton during his visit to the Covington Club on Tuesday. Bolton gave Moore a teddy bear on behalf of the club for the district governor's collection. While here, Moore met with Rotary Board Members to review their plans for the Rotary Year. He later gave a speech on the virtues of being a Rotarian. The club set a record for most members to become Paul Harris Fellows in a year. Fellows are members who have gifted a $1,000 or more to Rotary Foundation efforts. Paul Harris Recipients at the meeting were Dan Babb, Dick Bellairs, Sherri Bolton, Libby Carter, Terry Clark, Paul Courchaine, Joe Davidson, Dale Evans, Sally Evans, Bob Faulkner, George Jefferson, CL Johnson, Christy Lassiter, Mike Lassiter, Clark Miller, Terry Ozburn, Johnny Smith, Otis Spillers, Bob Stafford, Darrell Tanner, Jim Tudor, Marilynn Whatley and Layla Zon. (Above) Governor Moore, right, presented a Paul Harris pin to Libby Carter — the widow of Ron Carter, who was a community leader and past president of the club. Carter, who recently passed away, made arrangements for this special award for his wife before his passing. His son Ron Clark Jr. accepted a Multi-Stone Paul Harris award for his father.
