President's Extra Message
Cyril Clark, PHF
Tributes to Cyril continue to be received by the Club, as Cyril was so well known across our Rotary District!
Cyril was a Crows Nest Rotary Club Charter Member, who joined Rotary in 1969, see photo above.  
52 years in Rotary, what an achievement!
Cyril Clark’s passing is a great loss to Crows Nest Rotary and the District, and to everyone who knew him, he was the Model Rotarian.
Cyril, we’ll all miss you!
