On Dec. 15, Bailey’s Crossroads Rotary Club recognized local attorney and longtime Rotarian, Col. Calvin M. Vos, USAF Ret., for his Rotary service.

Vos, 99, has been a member of the Rotary Club of Bailey’s Crossroads since June 1, 1987. During his 23 years of Rotary service he has served the club and his community in many different ways, from ringing the bell for the Salvation Army kettle at Christmas time, to delivering food baskets and clothing to families in need.

“The main objective of Rotary is service, in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world,” said Hester. “Cal, as a Rotarian, has worked selflessly to accomplish that goal. Cal is a true gentleman, an honor to his profession, an unselfish man who has worked diligently to build goodwill and peace in our community and the world.”

Vos was recognized at a special club luncheon hosted by The Fountains at Washington House, 5100 Filmore Ave., Alexandria, where Vos resides. The luncheon was attended by many club members, Vos’ wife, Jean, and a dozen family members and friends.
