PHILIP LOVEJOY

Phil took over from Ches. as Secretary of R. I. on July 1st, 1942 and carried on until December 31st, 1952.

When Ches left many of us felt he could never be replaced and of course no other man could possibly have his intimate background as he saw Rotary grow from just one club to several thousand clubs. However, Phil Lovejoy proceeded to do a grand job right from the start. He had, of course, worked with Ches for many years and before being employed by Rotary International he had a fine experience in the field of education, so was well fitted for his work with R. I. So again in 1952 it seemed Rotary was suffering a heavy loss but George Means took over after working with Phil for years, and Rotary moves on.

Phil has many good years left and every Rotarian wishes him success in abundance and Marie will be able to become acquainted with him again!

J.A.C.
