ROTARY CLUB HAS FIRST WOMAN PRESIDENT
BY JAMES ARMSTRONG
The Thornbury-Clarksburg Rotary Club will soon have the first woman president in its 72-year history.
Karen James, a resident of The Blue Mountains, will be presented with the president's gavel July 1 at a special dinner meeting of the club.
James and current president Dave Slade appeared as a delegation at Wednesday's meeting of Blue Mountains council to speak about projects undertaken by the local club. Several past presidents and long-time T-C Rotary members accompanied them.
Among the club's charter members were the late Murray Hammond and George South. Slade said the club has submitted a request to the town to name a new park in Heathcote in honour of South.
"George lived in Heathcote where he founded and ran his farm implement dealership for many years," Slade said. "Therefore, the location of the park is most suitable."
