Four members were recently inducted into the Rotary Club of Jamestown. They included Kenneth Omeruo and Kay Marker Magneson, who were inducted on Nov. 30; and Kevin Sixbey and Sherry Hutley, who were inducted on Oct. 19. One of the most valuable things about Rotary is the fellowship and goodwill it engenders amongst club members and members of Rotary International as a whole. We feel incredibly lucky to welcome these four civic-minded individuals to our Club. Congratulations, all, and welcome to Rotary!
