The Rotarian of the Year award was presented by Past President Cynthia Giguere to Bonnie Ganske at last Friday’s meeting since Bonnie and husband Dale were unable to attend the presidential cruise earlier in the month.
Giguere said Ganske has been a mentor and good friend and was the person who invited her to join Rotary. “She embodies to me what Rotary stands for. Every year she exemplifies what it is to give and gives more. Her level of service is extraordinary” and she’s now involved in two countries with two clubs – in Sylvan and in Huatulco, Mexico.
Husband Dale was presented with a bouquet of flowers and a medal as co-recipient. Bonnie said he’s her support system, she couldn’t do what she does without him.
The club’s new president is Trevor Sigfusson.
