The Huron Sertoma Club recognized one of its longterm members on May 8, when it presented the annual Sertoman of the Year Award to Bob Entwisle.
Entwisle, who has been a member since 1956, said that being a part of the service club has just become a part of his life. “I am very proud of this club’s accomplishments,” Entwisle said, “for the Huron community at large and particularly for the area’s youth.”
Sertoma president Butch Spain said that Entwisle had been selected for the award based upon his many years of involvement with the club and also his willingness to lend a helping hand with many projects over the years.
“As part of the effort for youth projects, Sertoma built Memorial Baseball Park,” Entwisle said, “and also built the large picnic shelter in Memorial Park.”
Internationally, Sertoma’s focus is on helping those who are hearing impaired. One of Entwisle’s granddaughters is poised to complete her doctorate and works with hearing impaired patients.
“Bob is very deserving recipient of this award,” Spain said.
The Huron Sertoma Club meets at noon on Mondays at The New Plains. Those interested in joining the service group are encouraged to attend a meeting.
