Jim Fitzgerald was an outstanding man

Dear Editor,

I want to thank you for Robin Y. Richardson’s recent front page article about Jim Fitzgerald. All that Robin said about Jim was true and more.

I also am a Rotary Past District Governor (several years after Jim). Years ago I gave $2,500 to the Rotary Foundation. Jim remarked I had inspired him in my giving. Years later I gave another $5,000 to the Rotary Foundation. I believe Jim gave $100,000 to the Rotary Foundation.

I read the report Jim had written about the history and the club and told Jim I appreciated his efforts and his comments. I received a response from Jim thanking me for my comment. “What you say and mean means a lot Mr. Jim.”

I propose that all other friends of Jim Fitzgerald write the editor and have their names added to the list of friends and admirers of Mr. Jim Fitzgerald.
