Presidential Citation

All Rotarians strive to improve their club and community to the best of their abilities, but once in a while, if only by shear perseverance in serving, a Rotarian must be recognized and acknowledged for his continuous effort in pursuit of the ideal of Rotary, "Service Above Self". This year’s Presidential Citation is awarded to a Rotarian who has been considered controversial, obstinate, often inflexible and even at times downright difficult. But, he rarely misses a weekly meeting, attends every fellowship events and always assists in all club and community projects. His commitment to Rotary, our Club, his Fellow Rotarians and the Community is second to none. He is well versed in all aspects of the Rotary world, keeps abreast of new developments and his years of experience in Rotary give him an insight to understand and resolve the Rotary issues he is confronted with daily.

If he’s never late for the weekly meetings, it could be due to the fact that he insists on sitting in the exact same chair and table every week. He rarely engages in any discussions, usually simply waiting for the most opportune moment to express his straightforward comment on the issue. One could say, a man of few words but always to the point. He’s a Rotarian who cares, a man who devotes himself to his family, a community minded person willing and able to listen and serve.

It is my honor and privilege to award this Presidential Citation which reads:

"In recognition of your dedication and continuous commitment to Rotary and the Community, as well as your remarkable effort in serving the Rotary Club of St. Maarten for the past 23 years"

Now past president Pierre Decelles concluded: "To my Friend, my Fellow Rotarian and Past President Fred Fleming".
