The Rotary recently honored our last Charter Member, Newt Kellackey, a retired dentist, whose compassion for people in need was a driving force for his humanitarian commitments.  With the support of the Rotary Club, Newt made many trips to Brazil to meet their health care needs.  Newt developed, with total support from the club, thirteen international health care missions to the Amazon jungle.  He spearheaded the shipping of 200 baby scales, 35 bicycles, 400 pairs of glasses, a 4 wheel truck, an entire surgical lab and equipment, and building of 11 water wells. In 2002 Newt and Dan Fronczak, through their hard work, got pledges from 22 clubs within our district and with funds from Rotary International, provided a much needed replacement truck to Esperanza, Brazil.  Through Newt’s influence, the Rotary supported an international exchange student from Brazil.  The Rotary is very proud of Newt and the things he has accomplished as a Rotarian.  He and other members through the years, are the type of people that inspire future generations to attempt and attain worthwhile goals.
