James A. Valley, long-time friend and business associate of Ron Bykowski, was presented with a Paul Harris Fellow recognition at the regular noon meeting of the McHenry Rotary Club, Thursday, January 21st, at the McHenry VFW Lodge.  

     The Paul Harris recognition is presented by persons contributing $1,000 or more to the Rotary Foundation.  This is an international fund which supports service projects all over the world, polio vaccines, education, water supplies, and many related needs.  Ron and Jim have worked together for 34 years and Ron added, "We have had fewer spats than either one of us with our wives."
