Mason City Mournes Passing of Bob Paddack, A 50-Year Member
The Rotary Club of Mason City mourns the death of our very dear member and good friend, Reverend Robert Paddack, who passed away on Friday, December 22, 2017.
A respected and loved member of our club was called home —please keep his family in your prayers. We honor Bobs service to our community and Rotary.
Reverend Paddack was the epitome of the Rotary Motto “Service Above Self”, and a walked the talk of the Four-Way-Test. A TRUE leader! (Editor’s Note: Bob was one of my favorite Rotarians, and a true mentor for me, a TRUE gentleman, a TRUE friend, and TRUE Rotarian).
We all will miss Bob tremendously. Rest in peace, our friend!
Mason City Club Receives Grant Award for Energy Education and Awareness
In addition to the $2,000 grant the Mason City Rotary received, Mason City Christian Church received $2,000 in grant funds, and the City of Mason City received $10,000 in funds from Elevate Energy as well.
It is wonderful when a community and organizations partner and collaborate to a common cause!
The club will be allocating the funds to projects that our club decides on in the very near future. As this year's Rotary International President Ian Risley has stated: "What Does Rotary Do? ---- "Improve people's lives, locally and globally, through service."
We intend to use the funds to do just that!
