Walter P. Willms Award Presented to Michelle Morency and New Member Induction: Alexandra Sellick.
The 3rd annual Walter Willms Award was presented at the July 16th Rotary meeting. PP Mike Drake gave a heartfelt speech about how much the Walter means to our Club:
“One of the greatest honour in my year as your Club President was the start of Young Rotary Leaders in our Club and to be able to announce the presentation of the Walter P. Willms New Rotarian Leader award in 2016 which was started to recognize a member who exemplifies the qualities of our Walter.
I know I speak for the entire executive at the time from the Club with the joy we felt when we surprised Walter with this announcement on a cold winter early Friday morning at our meeting at the Safety Village. Walter sat silently with tears building up in his eyes when we announced this to him and it filled ours also.
We are very fortunate to have someone of Walter's character, determination and dedicated service in our club.”
