Historic Rotary Meeting

Just stumbled across my Rotary attendance make-up certificate for a very special evening in Moscow on August 20th, 1991. We met for the social hour and suddenly the entire Russian Rotary membership of some 25 men excused themselves in mass  "we have some very important business to attend to...." and left us (about 8) foreigners to our meal! That evening was in fact the fateful night in the coup d'etat between Yeltsin in the Russian White House against the traditional communist regime headed by Gorbachev and effectively the day that turned Russia to Perestroika.

Rotary Announces Citizens of the Year

Tappahannock Rotary Club presents Mr Joe Ware and Mrs Helen Ware of Dunsville, VA our Vocational Award of "Citizen of the Year". John Lewis presented the Rotary Award and Monte Gladding the Mayor of Tappahannock also presented them with a key to the town for all the greatness they have done and continue to do for our great town and county. We could all wish there were more selfless people like the Wares in the world. CONGRATS to them both.
