Thirteen Warracknabeal Rotarians, several partners, and two Honorary Rotarians travelled to Geelong on Tuesday 4th September to participate in the celebration of Stan’s induction into Rotary 50 years ago. As well as family members and members of his home club of Geelong East, there were Rotarians representing his previous two clubs,  Warracknabeal (his first club) and Beaufort, plus long time friend, Rotarian Clem Quick from the RC Beaumaris. Clubs present read out extensive lists of achievements and contributions from Stan’s 50 years of service.  RC Geelong East President David presented Stan with his second Paul Harris Sapphire recognition saying Stan was probably the only Rotarian in Australia to receive this recognition from three separate Rotary Clubs.
In Stan’s response he thanked Carol, his family and the many Rotarians for their support during his 50 years of service.
