Thursday’s meeting of the Comstock Park Rotary Club saw a busy agenda.  Our special guest of honor was Frank Vietze, a long-time member of the Club who is now moving to New England.   Frank participated in as many Rotary projects as he could, served numerous years as Treasurer (without a computer, calculator or adding machine) and was a great spokesman for Rotary International and the Paul Harris Fellowship Award.  Frank took ill a few months ago and since then his wife and him decided to move east to be closer to his family.  We will surely miss him.
Speaking of the Paul Harris Fellowship, long time member Tom Bereza was recognized as a Paul Harris Fellow.  The recognition goes to members who have contributed and/or had money contributed in their name in an amount of $1,000 or more to the International Rotary Foundation.  The Rotary Foundation transforms our gifts into service projects that change lives both close to home and around the world.  More information can be found here .
Welcomed at our meeting was our latest new member Julie Zermeno, the branch manager at PNC Bank. Julie takes the place of Scott who is no longer with the bank.   Kenowa Hills School Superintendent Gerald Hopkins offered a new project the club could be involved in.  It involves clean up  of some school; property. This sounds like a summer Saturday morning project.  Members were also reminded that our next and last BBQ of the season will be Thursday, August 15.
