Outgoing President Joanne Dahlen closed the awards dinner program on June 20, 2017 by recognizing Tom Glasgow and Jerry Kelly as the “Rotarians of the Year” for their years of service to Sunrise Rotary and Rotary International.
Tom has been a member of Sunrise Rotary since 1997 and is a past President of the club.  Jerry has been a member of the club since 1998.  Both individuals have been distinguished as Paul Harris Fellows.
“The Tom and Jerry Show is our unique way of welcoming members and guests to our weekly breakfast,” said Joanne. “Week-in and week-out these two manage check-in and registration at our meetings, often arriving at the American Legion before 6:00am.  Most guests comment on the high energy, warmth and congeniality that they feel at our club. I think it is remarkable as well, and would argue that it starts the minute you walk in the door to check-in for the meeting. Seriously, the Tom and Jerry Show is amazing.  Every Tuesday they deliver just what you need, a hug or a laugh - they always seem to know.  They are the glue of our club - always there to greet us and set the upbeat and sometimes irreverent tone that has become the hallmark of this club.”
