Jamie Tripp said that the Midland Club has been awarding this honour since Fred Hacker introduced it 1979 and over the 35 years has presented it to 43 deserving residents.  It's always difficult to pick just one person from the many who reflect the goals of Rotary by dignifying their classification, personifying ethical conduct and working to foster peace.  Dave spoke for himself and Michele who had nominated Betty Valentine by saying that she does things quietly.  She is retired from her position as Treasurer of Penetangquishene but continues to exemplify Service Above Self.  She's a friend to Rotary, she volunteers as a reader to the blind, she campaigns for Heart and Stroke, is the finance chair of St. Anne's church, is a lay minister and serves on the Parish Council and works with Youth Groups.  She's on the Board of Rosewood, works with Hospice Huronia and is the co-leader of the local Terry Fox run since 1984, helping to raise over $1,000,000.00.  Betty volunteers at the Penetang Library and has served on their Board, is the GBGH Finance Chair, was the Vice Chair of the Waypoint Board and will be Chair this year.  David thanked Betty for all her service and said it gave he and Michele great pleasure to present this well deserved award.  Betty thanked them both for the nomination and said she was very touched by it but noted that many other people are part of it all.  She says she is very aware that giving is important but that by giving you receive so much.  You grow, you meet people, you learn about other parts of the community and it has all been a wonderful experience.  This is a special award for her, she said, because she is such a big fan of Rotary and she thanked the Club for the recognition.
