An Evening Acknowledging Jim & Glenys Osborne and Terry & Janet Hubbard
President Tony welcomed our guests of honour, Jim & Glenys Osborne and Terry & Janet Hubbard; along with Mick & Ann McCormick, Ian & Patti Sichlau, Cheryl & Rob O’Halloran, Lyndal & Al Tait, Wendy & Geoff Woodyard, Janet Forde, Jess & Logan Carpenter and members partners Pat, Liz, Denise, Clare & Kerry.
We shared a fun evening, acknowledging the huge contribution made to Yea Rotary, the local community and more importantly, the Strath Creek community, by Terry and Jim, along with their wives Janet and Glenys, and farewelling them as they move away from Yea.
Both Jim and Terry are past presidents and Paul Harris award recipients and have led many significant projects under the Rotary banner and for the community, including the Fire Recovery post 2009, Community Bank, Landcare, Yea Saleyards development, Garden Expo, Open Gardens and Day Springs to name a few, along with supporting all Rotary activities the club undertakes.
Thanks to Julie Lynch, Glenda Woods, Bob Dewar, David Anderson and John Sinclair who each recounted stories for both Terry and Jim and all spoke of the generosity of time and spirit to always uphold the Rotary motto “Service above Self”.
Julie thanked Janet and Glenys for their support to Rotary, always willing to open their homes to many international visitors, open gardens, and exchange student visits who were all made very welcome.
President Tony returned formality to the evening when Terry, Janet, Jim and Glenys were made lifetime honorary members of Yea Rotary Club and were presented with certificates of appreciation.
