“Through (Windham’s) leadership, the club is closer to realizing a longterm goal of constructing a splash pad for our city,” said Hunter Compton, who will serve as the club’s 2018-19 club president.

“Jason did so many things – all with a smile and friendly handshake. He epitomizes the Rotary motto of ‘Service Above Self,’” Compton said.
