President's Rose to Don Blakslee

Don Blakslee (or better known to his friends as Lord Elgin!) received President Richard's Rose this week in recognition of the vital role he has played in our Program Committee for over 14 years but especially for his devotion to our club's aims and objects since he joined in 1965. Don served on our Board of Directors for many years but had to step down, for business reasons, when he was in line to become one of our Presidents. His generosity is expressed in so many quiet ways (and sometime not so quiet - when he has to package up 100 bags of Christmas candies!). Very well deserved, Don.
