On September 13, 1967 Don Miller attended his first Rotary meeting. Now, 50 years later we had the pleasure of honoring Don on his golden anniversary. President Dr. Brad Yacklich went to Odell Library to unearth some Rotary treasures from days gone by. Don was a big part of the memories of many of those years. He has assumed the role of honorary song leader and he does his best to lead us to sing happy birthday to all of our Rotarians on their big day. Don recalled a year where he had to step into the presidency due to an unexpected vacancy. He finished that year and then served the next. We honor Don who began teaching in Morrison back in the early 50’s. Don said he just got out of the Air Force and he was taking the place of a teacher who was drafted into the military. Don has had a career in acting in many plays in the Morrison area including Fiddler on the Roof where he had to grow a beard to play the part of a rabbi. We wish Don many more years with our club. Fellow Rotarian Gary Steinert said it best “Don has been a role model and a mentor to so many” Congratulations Don Miller on your 50th Anniversary with the Morrison Rotary Club!
