On Thursday 23rd September Ron Pavellas, our club’s charter president, became the third person to become an honorary member of SIRC. In an emotional speech given in front of a well attended meeting President Art Kosol thanked Ron for his many years of dedicated service to our club and said that he had distinguished himself by meritorious service in the furtherance of Rotary ideals. She then presented Ron with an honorary members badge and a framed honorary member certificate marking the honour bestowed on him. Ron then gave a short thank you speech after which Carl Vernesson, one of SIRC’s two other honorary members and the man who came up with the idea of establishing SIRC in the first place, told members a bit about how the club was founded and how he and Ron worked together to get it off the ground way back in 2003.
