Deer Park Rotary honors Charter Member Don Veillette
 
Don Veillette and his wife, Marge, were special guests at the July 19th Deer Park Rotary Club meeting as the club recognized Don as a lifetime honorary member.
 
Don, along with twenty other business and professional leaders of Deer Park became the chartered members of the 259th club to join Rotary International, an international service club whose motto is “Service Above Self”.  Through the many years of Don’s time in the club, much was accomplished by the Rotarians for the Deer Park Community.  Some of the projects included installation of the sprinkler system at Perrins Field, helped construct the bleachers at DPHS football field, constructed the dugouts at DPHS and helped financially with the reconstruction of the dugouts, along with providing scholarships at Deer Park, Riverside and Mary Walker High Schools and sponsored Deer Park Cub Scout Pack #202.
 
Don served as club president twice and was the club historian.  As he shared memories of the club and individual projects he made that are still used in the meetings, he also shared how deeply he cares about Rotary and how it has made a difference. 
 
Thank you, Don, for your service through the years in Deer Park and in the world.
