During his 52 years as a #Rotary member, Texas district judge Ronnie Yeager has never missed a meeting. How did he maintain that streak when his family took a 3-month vacation along the coast of Australia? Find out:
Ronnie Yeager, 84, joined the Rotary Club of Aransas Pass, Texas, on 1 May 1970. Over the 52 years of club meetings since, he has had perfect attendance.
