WATERLOO – You might call him “The Man With The Spatula.”
George Poormon has served in Rotary for more than 34 years, usually at the grill. He’s flipped burgers at Empire Farm days, pancakes at Rotary Fly-In Breakfast, or hot dogs at Celebrate Commemorate. In recognition of his Service Above Self, Waterloo Rotary President Jane Shaffer presented Poormon with his second Paul Harris award.
“Rotary has been a great way for me to make lasting friendships while serving my community,” Poormon said. “Being named a Paul Harris fellow for doing something I enjoy is a great honor.”
Poormon is the latest in a series of Paul Harris fellows recognized by Waterloo Rotary. At recent meetings, Scott Kolsin received his first Paul Harris, Stephanie Ross her second, Kathy Sigrist her fourth and Jim Hughes his eighth.
In addition, Stephanaie Ross presented her daughter, Ashley, with a Paul Harris in recognition of Ashley’s upcoming Rotary Exchange year in France.
The Paul Harris Fellowship Award, Rotary’s highest honor, is named for Rotary’s founder, Paul Harris, who believed in “Service Above Self.”
Waterloo Rotary meets every Monday at 6:30 p.m. at Quality Inn. New members are always welcome.
