Colonel Jay Seward was honored with the 4-way test award on Wednesday, October 18th. He has never missed a meeting even when he is traveling, he still finds a way to attend a Rotary meeting in that area. He has been our clubs secretary for as long as anyone can remember. He fills in as sergeant at arms when needed. He volunteers for everything our club has.  Colonel Seward surely deserves this award. Congratulation on this great honor.
