In exactly 93 days, the Faribault Rotary Club will celebrate its 100-year anniversary on May 1, 2020.  This week’s historical highlight is from 2001.
The Annual Honor’s Banquet was held for seniors from BA and Faribault High School.
The Annual Strive Banquet was held with scholarships awarded. The program was doing well in its third year with Marv Schrader as chair.
The Club held the annual picnic and silent auction at the Rotary Camp.
The club enjoyed the 62 annual Christmas Concert.
Our club’s 81st president in 2000-01 was David Balcom.  He was the managing editor of The Faribault Daily News.
Rod Mahler noted the following:
“I remember Dave was a big Michigan fan (graduate there) and we always got on each other when the football, hockey, and basketball games were played.  I sold his house when he moved out west.”
