On March 6, Spruce Pine Rotary Club President Janie DeVos presented Rotarian Bill Sweetser with a long overdue Rotary star for his tireless service in both the Spruce Pine Rotary Club, and the community. Bill served as club president from 2011-12, and has been this year's program chair. He has donated countless hours of service to The Shepherd's Staff, and ministers to not only his Presbyterian congregation, but to anyone who needs a kind listening ear and words of encouragement or advice. Bill is truly an asset to our club, the community, his many friends and family. He is a true example of the Rotary motto: Service Above Self. Rotarians congratulate and express thanks to Bill!
