Watkins-Montour Rotary recently named Nancy Cole their newest Paul Harris Fellow – the Rotary International’s highest award, representing “service above self.”
Cole was surprised with the honor by her husband, Charlie Cole.
Nancy Cole was for two decades a pharmacy tech at Cole & Son Pharmacy in Watkins Glen — husband Charlie being the “Son” part of the title. After that she ran antique sales operations in Watkins Glen, Corning and Farmington. She has been involved with the Lake Country Players for 25 years in various capacities, donated time to the Office for the Aging, and now donates time to the Elizabeth B. Pert Memorial Library in Hector. She and Charlie raised five children, and Nancy returned to college after having their fifth child to secure a bachelor’s degree.
Watkins-Montour Rotary welcomes new members, and meets Thursdays at Noon at the Upper Deck Bar & Grill in Watkins Glen.
