President Len in one of his final acts as President of the Rotary Club of Belleville for 2014/15 presented Rotary Star Awards to Nadine Langlois and Shannon Neely for their contributions to the club.  Both members of the Board of the Rotary Club of Belleville, Nadine has been a board member for 5 years and has completed all three levels of Rotary International training and has been an active member of the club, serving on multiple committees and being a consistent volunteer at Rotary events since becoming a member of the club.  Len pointed out her tremendous contributions to the club as editor of Rotopics now club runner bulletin, especially during the transition of platforms that has occurred during the past year. Well done Nadine and well deserved recognition for your contributions to the Rotary Club of Belleville.
President Len handed out the 2nd Rotary Star award to Shannon Neely. In Shannon's absence, new incoming Treasurer Andrew Bandler received the award on Shannon's behalf.  President Len spoke to Shannon's contributions to the club especially during the past 2 years as he stepped into the huge shoes of Rotarian Ray McCoy when he stepped down as treasurer.  Shannon presided over the creation of a new accounting platform and the hiring of an outside accounting firm to manage daily financial recordkeeping and when there was a change at the firm entrusted with overseeing this, he assisted in training the new person not only in the way records were to be taken but also the Rotary way.  While acting as Treasurer, Shannon also undertook the role of Vice President and will be transitioning from the Treasurer's role into President elect when Kelly assumes the President's role at the completion of Len's term.  Congratulations Shannon on the recognition and all your efforts for the Rotary Club of Belleville.
