Deer Park Rotary Honors Charter Member Don Veillette

Don Veillette and his wife, Marge, were special guests at the July 19th Deer Park Rotary Club meeting, as the club recognized Don as a lifetime honorary member.

Mr. Veillette, along with twenty other business and professional leaders of Deer Park, became the chartered members of the 259th club to join Rotary International, an international service club whose motto is “Service Above Self”.  Through the many years of Mr. Veillette’s time in the club, much was accomplished by the Rotarians for the Deer Park community.  Some of the projects included installation of the sprinkler system at Perrins Field, aiding in the construction of the bleachers at Deer Park High School(DPHS) football field, constructing the dugouts at DPHS and helping financially with the reconstruction of the dugouts, along with providing scholarships at Deer Park, Riverside, and Mary Walker High Schools, and sponsoring Deer Park Cub Scout Pack #202.

Mr. Veillette  served as club president twice and was the club historian.  As he shared memories of the club and individual projects he made that are still used in the meetings, he also shared how deeply he cares about Rotary and how it has made a difference.  

The Rotary Club says “Thank you, Don, for your service through the years in Deer Park and in the world.”
