We honored James Maloney for his 50 years of service to the Methuen Rotary Club and presented him with his 2nd Paul Harris which is the highest honor a Rotarian can receive.  In January we held a brunch in his honor and many local city leaders attended to celebrate James.  He was the City Clerk in Methuen for many years, served as Methuen Board of Trade President, and was involved in many different service areas within the Merrimack Valley. He also served as President of Methuen Rotary Club which is where his heart truly remained. 
To quote his wife Louise Rotary was always a very important part of his life and has given him some wonderful memories.  I remember when he was still active in the Club I could never schedule anything on a Friday from 12 to 2pm.  He still likes to talk about all the good times the Club provided, and the good the Club does for various organizations.
It was our honor to celebrate him and thank him for his years of service.  James truly exemplified the Rotary Motto “Service Above Self”
