Potsdam Rotarians celebrated the 1928 founding of the local club on April 23. A special reunion of former members highlighted the day. Among those Rotary alumni attending were Don Dangremond, Al Rothermal, Bill Fiesinger, Red Curtis and Seth Chgichester. Rotarians recalled the many community projects and personal relationships that emerged from their service. High on the list were founding the vocational excellence award with BOCES, building the Lawrence Avenue playground, building beach in Hannawa Falls, and working to establish the Potsdam Empire Zone. Reunion Rotarians also recalled the many Rotary conventions and conferences, the kazoo bands, and the golf tournaments.
Club President Laura Cordts asked visitors to recall their fondest memories. Rotarians celebrated with a "birthday cake" donated by LuAnn Cross and the Big M. Several Rotarians thanked the club for honoring them as Paul Harris fellows.
