The Rotary Club of Ballston Spa annually installs its new officers, however this year was a celebration to remember.  Maplewood Manor was the chosen site in honor and memory of our longtime Secretary Patty Rutland.  Patty gave her heart and soul to the residents of Maplewood as well as Rotary.  Ballston Spa Rotary dedicated a beautiful bench for the garden area for everyone to enjoy time together.  President John Cromie was awarded the Rotarian of the Year for his diligent efforts to develop the club with new members and initiate the two meetings-a-week pilot program.  Scott Farron, Student of the Year and Steve Springer, Citizen of the Year were awarded for their long list of accolades and service to the school and community.   Residents joined in to listen to the music of NiteHawk and danced the evening away!
