FALCONER - The Falconer Rotary Club held its annual installation and awards dinner at Moon Brook Country Club recently.
Guests and members celebrated 198 years of combined years of service from four longstanding members: Bud Black, 44 years; Duey Anderson, 45 years; Jack Henderson, 50 years; and Dick Turner, 59 years. The men are all Paul Harris recipients and remain active in the club sharing their time and expertise, allowing the club to continue to serve the community.
Over its 74-year history, the Falconer Rotary Club has served war-torn Europe after World War II, hosted many Rotary exchange students, raised more than $10,000 to the End Polio Now campaign, sent a refurbished fire truck to Chile, drilled a water well in Haiti and sent books to the Philippines and Jamaica.

Locally the club has supported local libraries, food pantries, refurbished Falconer Park, established a scholarship and summer programs in Falconer, as well as supporting several other local projects and programs. Black, Anderson, Henderson and Turner continue to work with the other 20 members of the club.
