Bill Regan

Bill Regan has been discharged from Boone Hospital and will be moving to Georgia, where he will live with daughter Julie Miller and her husband Joshua, and continue his outpatient therapy.

Bill’s goal on his erase-board at Boone has been: GET RICH QUICK. It will now be to be able to return to his condo here, 1st Presbyterian Church and Rotary South. That will require lots of determination and work…and continuous encouragement from his support network in Columbia. Here is where you can reach Bill in the Augusta GA area:

c/o Julie Miller

3784 Dunn Ct.

Appling, GA  30802

Bill spoke appreciatively of the many visits, cards and support he has received from Columbia South Rotarians during the months since he suffered the stroke. He’s going to need all of that and more in the months ahead. Bill looks forward to coming back to deliver his thanks personally on a Friday morning in the future. Our support, prayers and encouragement will help him make that happen.

Past District Governor R D Ross

Past District Governor R D Ross passed away May 3rd.  Mike Heckner and Bob Churchill from the Columbia Club were there that morning. The daughters told them that a service would be a couple of months out because friends and family are all over the country. They reported that RD looked peaceful and great in his gold MU Tiger polo shirt. There was a KU blanket at the foot of the bed (his undergraduate school).  He was a wonderful man and patriot. Up until recently, he never missed a meeting.  He was a magnet at weekly meetings.  Everyone wanted to greet and talk to him. He will be missed.
