Dear Rotarians: 
It’s with a heavy heart I bring to you the passing of Past District Governor, Mary Valentine Callahan - “Val Callahan,” as she was known.  For over 30 years Val had been a Rotarian, beginning in District 7910, where she was Club President, Foundation Chair, GSE leader, Assistant Governor and District Governor 2014-15.  When Val moved to Boston, the Boston #7 club welcomed her.  She became the club’s Foundation Chair.  Val was a Major Donor, Sustainer and Bequest Society Member.  
She will be missed by Rotarians both near and far.  Val leaves behind her husband, Rotarian Mohamed Elhanash, her two grown children and their families.  
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, at 10:00AM on August 26, 2023, at Trinity Church, 206 Clarendon St, Boston, MA 02111.  
All are welcome to attend.
