Our View: Thumbs up to lifetime service honor for Rotarian
Thumbs up: To John "Doc" Ovitz, whom the Sycamore Rotary Club honored this week for his lifetime of service to the club and community by giving him the Rotary Foundation District Service Award. Rotary Club members complimented the 99-year-old retired physician for his philanthropy with community causes such as Sycamore’s log cabin project and Pumpkin Festival. In addition to the Sycamore Rotary, he was a member of the Sycamore Chamber of Commerce and was a member of the local school board. The Rotary Club also designated its award for Rotarian of the Year as the John W. Ovitz Rotarian of the Year award. Such recognition seems beyond appropriate for his contributions, and we tip our hats to him as well.
