Ron Jones has been a Rotarian for 35+ years. He has announced to Elmbrook Rotary Club that he and his wife Barbara have sold their home here in Wisconsin and are retiring permanently to Florida. ERC members hope that this dedicated, faithful Rotarian will find another club in Florida OR even continue as an ERC member. The latter is possible because of how the CoViD-19 global pandemic has created opportunities for Rotary virtual membership in any club in the world.
 
Ron shares the following about his Rotary journey:
 
"My history with Rotary began (35 years ago) in April 1986.  I was VP of Patient Care Services at Elmbrook Memorial Hospital.  Dr. Sridhar Vasudevan, M.D., was assigned to launch a new evening Rotary Club in Brookfield by the Brookfield Rotary Club Board of Directors.  Dr. Vasudevan came to me, at Elmbrook Hospital, to garner interest in me and others to join Rotary.  We were designated a provisional club status on May 6, 1986. 

"On October 22, 1986, the club received its official charter at a large gathering hosted by the Brookfield Rotary Club.  The new Brookfield  Sunset Rotary Club began with 25 new members.  Jim Dunn and I were charter members on that night. 

"I was President-Elect, and Jim Dunn was on the Board and also chair of the Club Service Committee.  I had perfect attendance for my first 32 years. 

"After 23 years of Nursing and Administrative work at Elmbrook Memorial Hospital, I was recruited to be President of the Siebert Lutheran Foundation in June 1993.  In January 2014, I retired from Siebert Foundation."  

On Friday, July 16, Ron was "mugged" by ERC President Dr. Thom Arndt with a small farewell gift. Thanks, Ron, and richest blessings to you and Barbara as you make another "transition" in life.
