Mike Steven expressed gratitude to Patty for Jim Monahan's generous gift to the club, noting that will be used for local needs, and that a committee has been formed to review various possibilities.  Mike described Jim as having been a true Rotarian -- giving service above self -- "someone who quietly did the right thing."  He had been a club member since 1974.  He made many contributions over the years, but is best remembered in recent years for his work at the Christmas luncheon for seniors, where his famous raisin sauce became a fixture.  Touching on other aspects of Jim's life, Mike recalled his 20 year service in the U.S. Air Force, his love of cooking, and his love of the outdoors.  His sports prowess extended to four different sports.  Golf was one of these, and he served for a time as golf pro at the Bethel Inn.  Jim was a great Rotarian and a great friend, and will be missed us all.
