50 Years a Rotarian

In mid December the club celebrated the 50 years of Rotary service of our Past President Claude Whitehead.

Claude initially joined the Rotary Club of Loxton while he was working there in the Savings Bank of SA. On transferring as manager to the Tea Tree Gully bank branch, he joined Tea Tree Gully Rotary, just a couple of weeks after the Club had been chartered, June 1975.

Twenty Past Presidents joined the club members and guests to celebrate, with Claude, his years of service to the community and to Rotary.

During the evening President Ray presented Claude with a framed letter from World President of Rotary International, Holger Knaack, who said:

“Congratulations on your 50 years of service.  Your continued passion for Rotary inspires us all.  We all love Rotary because we all love people, and Rotary gives us an opportunity to connect in a community of shared values, built on a foundation of friendship, and commitment to Service Above Self.

It is because of active and engaged members like you that Rotary Opens Opportunities.
Thank you for your dedication to community service and being part of the Rotary family
“.

Claude was then presented with a letter from the Honourable Tony Zappia MP, Federal Member for Makin, congratulating him for his 50 years of service to Rotary International and his contribution to the community, making it a better place to live in.

In addition, Claude was awarded a South Australian Parliamentary Medal by Dr Richard Harvey MP, Member for Newland, to acknowledge Claude’s 50 years of outstanding service to Rotary.

Charter Member Ron Krieg, Paul Harris Fellow with Sapphire, served well the Club and his Community for 40 years.  During this time Ron held many positions in the Club, which included Committee Chair, Historian, Almoner and Club Poet.
Ron was a most respected School Principal.  Because of his interests in education, the Club has, over a number of years, provided scholarships to TAFE students who qualify, to support their expenses. At a recent meeting, the club announced it’s decision to name the scholarship the Ron Krieg Award, and have requested that his wife, June, present the award on future occasions.

President Ron presented June with a memento of the Ron Krieg Scholarship at the meeting.
