Ruth and Al were special individuals dedicated to those they served. They were continually striving to improve the lives of others in their facility and in the community as well. They were actively involved in the chapter, with Rotary, and in the legislative process. Both Ruth and Al were positive role models and friends for each who knew them and they continue as roll models today.
Each of us have special people in our lives which have had a positive impact in us as individuals. Our chapter is no exception. We would like to take a moment and reflect on those individuals who are no longer with us, but have helped mold and shape our chapter into what we are today.
