The Rotary Club of Solon had the privilege of honoring two of Solon’s finest on Wednesday, January 16th, during our annual First Responders’ Dinner. Selected by their peers for this recognition, Fireman Nick Rostankowski and Patrolman James Horetcki were presented awards by their Chiefs. We are so proud of these dedicated professionals, who commit themselves to saving others and living the Rotary Motto “Service above Self.”

 

We were joined at the event by Mayor Eddy Kraus, all Solon Councilmen, Police Chief Viland, Fire Chief Shaw, the families and friends of the honorees, and our special guest District Governor Beverly. With 85 people in attendance, this was our largest First Responders’ Dinner yet!

 

During the event, we also had the opportunity to induct our new Rotarian, Judy Caine, and bestow a Paul Harris Fellowship Award to Councilman Bill Russo, who has provided generous support to our club over the years.

 

In all, a wonderful evening filled with Rotary spirit, kinship, and eloquent speeches. The Chiefs had heartwarming stories to tell about the first responders being honored, from their dedication to service, commitment to developing themselves and others, and specifics acts of courage. Mayor Kraus had many kind words of support and encouragement for our club, and DG Beverly closed the evening by showing her appreciation for our event. We would like to thank everyone involved in such a meaningful night!

The food bank yesterday was a major success! We served 100 families!! We had an incredible amount of volunteers, for set up, there were about 40 gentlemen from the Babes of 1916 Solon Softball team (they stated they will attend future food bank set ups). Solon celebs assisting were: Masroor (Directing) and family, Mayor Kraus, councilman Jeremy Zelwin, 4 Firefighters with their truck, Patrolman Bruce Felton,,  Bob Wilson and family, Bridget, Adam Zelwin, Zelwin children,  Irina and family. Also, assisting were volunteers from all the churches, Senior Center,  the company Loan Protectors and their families,  and my friends and husband. I know I am probably forgetting other Rotary volunteers. Thank you all!
 
Of course, everyone missed Jim Hyde. The bag ladies (the women who open the plastic bags) were very concerned about Jim's whereabouts. But, they were relieved that I brought the bags early to the food bank. They normally complain to Jim that they have been waiting for the bags, this is extremely cute, because the bag ladies are all in their 90's.
 
Great job Solon Rotary!! Service Above Self!
 
Happy Thanksgiving,
Diane M. Immonen
