The Effingham Noon Rotary Club had much to celebrate at its June 20 meeting.

The Club inducted Ron Kinder as a member, honored 15 individuals as new Paul Harris Fellows, said thanks to club member and Rotary District Governor Ron Schettler for his year of service, and helped club member Art Schottman celebrate his 100th birthday a couple of days early.  Art hits the century mark on Friday.
