Banner Collection

Our Club's Banner was designed by Marty Pratt in 1999.




Furnitureland Rotary Club had a respectable collection of banners given to the club by visiting Rotarians and received by our members who visited other clubs.  I remember seeing them displayed during meetings in the late 1970s and early 1980s.   Unfortunately they were misplaced.  Rumor suggests that they were destroyed when a basement was flooded.  The banners shown here were collected since that time, and found in the bottom of a storage cabinet in December 1999. 

GSE Team Leader Bob Fowler (Furnitureland) returned from District 1140 (London, England) with a collection of banners he received during his visit in October 1999.   I became interested in finding an alternative way of displaying the banners.  To see Bob Fowler's collection, follow this link.

Hal Dobbins, Furnitureland Rotary Club's Ambassadorial Scholar to Queensland, Australia visited and contributed his banners to our collection:

"The wood object is the "Kenmore Object."
Each of the notches represents one of
the 5 avenues of service and
the Pine Veneer on top is a slice
of a pine tree that was planted in
1935 by Paul Harris when he visited
Brisbane, Queensland Australia.
It is the symbol/banner for the
Rotary Club of Kenmore (my host club
in Brisbane from District 9600)."

Thanks, Hal, for taking the time to get Furnitureland Rotary connected!
