The Stryker Rotary Club changed presidents on Tuesday evening at their regular meeting. Ruth Wieland, past president, told the club of two awards the club received during her year as president. The club received a president’s citation, as well as an award for increasing membership by 5%. Ruth thanked the club for support during her presidency. Pastor Dane Meuschke took over the responsibility as president for the coming year. During the same meeting Ron Short presented Ruth with her first Paul Harris Fellowship. The fellowship is named for Paul Harris, who founded Rotary with three business associates in Chicago in 1905. The Fellowship was established in his honor in 1957 to express appreciation for a contribution of $1000 to the humanitarian and educational programs of The Rotary Foundation.
