Rotarian Richard Kemmis, left, is thanking Peter Allen, Founder and Executive Director of THANK A SERVICE MEMBER. Thank A Service Member was originally founded in 2006 as a grass roots initiative designed to educate the public and to support and show appreciation to the men and women who have served our country. The response to the campaign was overwhelming and in 2010 Thank A Service Member was incorporated as a not-for-profit. Their mission is to “Honor the Service and Support the Needs” of military men and women who have served our country and their families. They do this in a variety of ways, usually “piggy-backing” on other venues designed to pay tribute to the service men and women. During these tribute events the organization is proud to present them with the Thank A Service Member Coin, designed by Peter Allen, to serve as a source of pride and remembrance. Peter presented coins to Rotarians Donald Ross, Wallace Auser, Merrill Hoffman, Dr. Kenneth Kurtz, Gerald Seguin, Richard Kemmis and William Rasbeck thanking them for their military service.
