Richard Tie has advised the Rotary Board that due to ill health, he is resigning from the Rotary Club of Belleville, a decision he deeply regrets as he considers it an honour and privilege to have been a Rotarian for over 37 years.  He wishes the Club continued good work in the community and around the world and would be pleased to hear from his fellow Rotarians as to what has been happening.  The Club has great memories with Dr. Richard Tie, leading lunch meeting sing-songs, with much gusto and enthusiasm.  Richard was very involved with the Quinte Rotary Music Festival over the years and the committee has grown as a result of his expertise and enthusiasm.  He also spent many work weekends at Camp Merrywood, a sweat equity project supported by many Rotarians, family and friends.  We wish the best to Richard and his wife Joanne.  The Club recognizes how proud a Rotarian Richard was and thank him sincerely for all his work over the years.  His contributions were valuable and appreciated by many.
