The service for our friend and fellow Rotarian, Jim Blacker, will be Monday, November 2, 2014 at the LDS Stake House on Kimball Avenue, at 11:00 AM.  There will be family visitation at the Stake Center on Sunday evening from 6:30-8:30 p.m. and on Monday morning from 9:30-10:30 a.m. just prior to the service. 
     Jim was 69 years old at the time of his passing. He had been a faithful member of our club for 38 years, 10 months.  He was a Paul Harris Fellow+1.  Jim had served as our pianist for a number of years and is a past sergeant-of-arms for our club. He sponsored Mike Dittenber as a new member to our club, after he came to know Mike when he served on the board for Caldwell Housing Authority, where Mike works. 
     During his Rotary years, Jim had participated in the blood bank, bell ringing, and the rodeo booth. He was a friend to all and will always be remembered for his humor during our meetings. We miss him already.  Prayers to his wife Sheri, and his family and friends.
