Our Club poet & orator, Earl Jones, wrote this poem in honor of
our Chili Open Chair & Sargeant-at-arms, Barry Bank.
Our Rotary Man
He’s always there early,
attending to things.
He has plenty to do on his mind.
He’s a little bit burly.
His hair isn’t curly,
but no one can say he’s unkind.
He’s an icon, no doubt,
as he scurries about,
looking for members to fine.
He’s after our money.
We all find him funny.
His cause is always sublime.
He’s the man who’s in charge
of our focal event.
It’s not easy in these downturn times.
He comes up with the rent.
He is heaven-sent.
May his name be forever enshrined.
As he willingly serves,
no one gets on his nerves.
He is always the one to thank.
He’s the man who comes through
as good as brand new.
You guessed it! He’s our Barry Bank!
