SHELBY ROTARY CUJB HONORS JOHN F. SCHENCK SR.
John F. Schenck Sr. was made an honorary member of the Rotary Club in Shelby
this past month. This signal honor was bestowed upon Mr, Schenck on the 70th anniver
sary of the founding of Clcvel?jid Mill & Poivor Company, This company was founded in
1873, by the late Major H. F. Schenck and through the successivo years, since the
Major's death, clOath, has been headed by "Mr. John", emd his sons, John Schenck Jr.
and the late Hal Schenck,
We are all proud to be a part of this great organization — one that has weather
ed the ups and downs of so many years - one that has been in existence, since immedi
ately after the Civil War. Seventy years is a long time, much longer than you boys
can'remember, but we know that whereever you are, scattered all over the world, that
you, too, are proud of this ageless institution and v/ill be happy when the time comes
to return to our village with its busy hum of braiders rjid spindles.
All four of Mr, Schenck's sons have held Rotary membership - John, having been
the first president of the club, and Jean, having just completed last year as its
head. Dr. Sam is also an outstanding member and the late Hal Schenck was also an
active member - so the Rotarians decided on the occasion of the Companys anniversary
to honor Mr. Schenck as its second honorary member, the Rev. J, V/. Suttle, being the
first and only other honorary member of the club.
The Hoover Rail Staff, joined' by all Lawndale and our boys in service, offer Mr,
Schenck our congratulations upon this personal tribute and also upon the 70th '.nniver-
sary of Cleveland Mill & Pov/er Company,
