Letter: Former Rotarian honored for his continuing effort for service club

RIPON ROTARY CLUB recently bestowed Rotary International’s highest award, the Paul Harris Fellowship, to former Rotarian Jeff Liddicoat. The senior vice president at Horicon Bank was honored for his past and current contributions to Rotary, as well as to the Ripon community. He continues to be a top sales person for the club’s annual rose sale.

To the Editor:

... Ripon Rotary awarded Rotary’s highest honor, the Paul Harris Fellowship, to Honorary Rotarian Jeff Liddicoat, senior vice president at Horicon Bank.

... Jeff resigned his active membership in the club when his responsibilities at Horicon Bank prevented him from attending weekly meetings. Despite this, Jeff continues to actively support the club’s efforts, particularly with the rose sale. In addition to selling 73 dozen roses in 2014, and more than 1,000 dozen roses since 2002 (representing $7,500 in proceeds for the club’s community and international causes), he annually makes Horicon Bank available as the distribution site for roses.

Beyond his support of Rotary, Jeff is an active volunteer and leader in a variety of civic and community groups, embodying Rotary’s mantra of “Service above Self.”

Besides Jeff, this year’s honor roll of rose salespeople includes Randy Zieth, who sold 87 dozen and drove more than 300 miles to deliver them! ...
