1953-54 (KENNETH T. JONES, JR., President)

A newspaper article notes that during PP Ken’s administration, 41, students from the public and parochial elementary and high schools were guests of honor at a Rotary Club luncheon held at the Talk of the Town Restaurant, Tamuning.
PP Ken, who is now one of Guam’s success stories in the business community has provided the Club with the following message:
Dear Fellow Rotarians:

It is indeed a pleasure to be asked to participate in the 40th Anniversary of Rotary Guam. Having served as president in the years 1953 and 1954, I can see where Rotary has come a long way in the interim years. However, much to my delight I can see the Rotary motto of “Service to Others” has not only prevailed but expanded considerably over the many years of its existence on the island. Old faces have gone and new face come, but rotary and its basic ideals have reminded stable. This stability alone is an unusual phenomenon on Guam.

Each man, of course, has to evaluate for himself what Rotary has meant to him as an individual. To me, it has meant that chance to help others as well as share companionship and general good will with others who have incentive, feelings and appeared as an oasis — a short period of time to relax with friends.

As a citizen, I have watched proudly as Rotary has carried more than their share on the island, lending help with youth programs and student exchange, assisting in blood donor programs, giving post typhoon help for the needy and providing scholarship for worthy youngsters. It makes me proud to say ” I am one of this hard working group”.

As most of you are aware, Jones and Guerrero Company, Inc. employs approximately 1,000 employees. Of this number, many of our people have become active and productive Rotarians over the years. Some of our people come to us from off-island and have found within weeks, immediate friendship, many new friends and quick adaptation to our way of living in the good will of Rotary. I, above all, can recognize the value in this, as a happy employee is a productive one.

My deepest congratulation to Rotary on their 40 Anniversary on the island and to those past and present who have served so well to make Rotary what it is today.
Kenneth T. Jones, Jr.
Past President
