Comstock Park Rotary Celebrates its 58th Birthday
It was approximately 58 years ago that Comstock Park Rotary was chartered. 92 year old charter member Martin Buth was on hand at the weekly Rotary meeting to help celebrate the event and he shared some interesting history with the members in attendance. One interesting note is that Congressman Gerald R Ford attended several of the meetings of the Comstock Park Chapter. The chapter raised its first funds through the sale of fruitcakes.
Former Alpine Township Supervisor, Clerk, and Trustee Sharon Steffens was on hand at the Thursday Rotary meeting. Sharon will soon be celebrating her 50th wedding anniversary with husband John Steffens.
Not to be outdone by the Rotary, the Comstock Park Lions met Tuesday night. Seen are guest speakers Stanley Hone (left) and John Phipps who made a presentation on the Sightseers Radio Network, whose motto is "Changing Print to Voice" .
