         We lost a friend and long time Rotarian last December. And so, recently the Rotary Club of Forked River honored and celebrated the life of William S. (Bill) Whitson with a special ceremony to bestow Paul Harris Awards to his wife and children. Recounting the early days of Bill's Rotary involvement, founding Rotary Club of Forked River member, George Broome gave the gathering an insight to the man with 5 Paul Harris Awards and his humanitarian passions. Accepting the Paul Harris Awards from Past District Governor Peter Roukis and President William Recevuto, were Bill's wife Susie Whitson, his daughter Dawn Whitson Davis and on behalf of his son William Scott Wilson, Ami Baldi. Bill Whitson will be remembered for many things - his commitment to Rotary and this community, his friendship, his sense of humor and his plaid pants. We will miss you Bill.
