"Service Above Self." That is Rotary International's motto, and it accurately describes the activities of our local Rotarians.
On behalf of the Payson Fire and Police Departments, we want to express our gratitude to the Rim Country Rotary Club for hosting firefighters, police officers, dispatchers and their family members for dinner at their Third Annual Payson Public Safety Awards Banquet Feb. 27, 2002.
Recognized at the dinner were several award winners: Dispatcher of the Year Jill Van Camp, Firefighter of the Year Garrett Ward, and Police Officer of the Year David Blalock. These winners performed at a very high level last year and certainly deserved the accolades.
Thank you, Rim Country Rotary Club for all of your important work and for recognizing the performance of public safety personnel in our community.
John W. Ross, Fire Chief
Gordon H. Gartner, Police Chief
