Jim Fitzgerald presents Jim Gilford with the Club's "Citizen of the Year" award.
A very important feature of today's meeting was the presentation of the Club's "Citizen of the Year" award. For the Rotary year 2003-2004 the nominating committee choose a local fixture of the Town of Topsfield. This year's recipient is none other than James "Gilly" Gilford, proprietor one of the North Shores long serving community stores.

Jim Fitzgerald spoke of the great service that Gilly and his store bring to the Town of Topsfield and to the area. Jim Gilford is more than just the owner he's an integral part of the community supporting all sorts of causes including the Clubs own Fall Foliage Classic and the local schools. Jim is currently involved educating schools kids about the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle. Congratulations and thank you Jim Gilford from all of us here in the TBM Rotary and from the people of the Tri Town area.

 

Fines and Happy Dollars:

Sergeant-at-Arms Bob Was went about his business calmly and with great courage.

 

Raffle:

The luck of the draw was with no one today as the 2 of hearts eluded both Joe Carroll and Lois Brown.

Program:

Our speaker today was Nancy Black who is a professional organizer. She focuses on helping people eliminate the clutter in their lives and turning their "piles into files". Sometimes that file ends up being the wastebasket. I shutter at the thought. I know of two TBM members who did in fact go back to their offices and start acting on Nancy's message. For more information or just a bit of inspiration visit Nancy's web site a www.organizationplus.com.

 

Upcoming Programs:

June 9: Bill Sargent who will talk on the "Rising Sea Level".
