Two members of the Rotary Club of Alamo, Steve Polcyn and Jack Thompson, were presented the Outstanding Eagle Scout Award on behalf of the National Eagle Scout Association – for their distinguished service since receiving their Eagle awards decades ago and who have “inspired others through their actions by devoting a lifetime to their profession, avocation, community and beliefs at great sacrifice to themselves and their families.” The presentation was done by Frank Yoke, Development Director of the Golden Gate Area Council, BSA. He was assisted by Past Rotary District 5160 Governor and Alamo Rotarian Brian Thiessen
In each case their service has been outstanding at the local, state or regional and international levels… and each is well known for tireless commitment to betterment of their communities.
Steve received his Eagle in April 1955 in Troop 642, Chicago, and his adult service has included working with a number of health care companies and in the high-tech business.

The Rotary Club of Alamo is proud to present Tom Leatherman – Superintendent for the National Park Service over Eugene O’Neill National Historic Site (Tao House in Danville), John Muir National Historic Site (Martinez) , Port Chicago Naval Magazine National Monument (north Concord) and Rosie the Riveter National Historic Museum (Richmond) -- Paul Harris Fellowship for the significant contribution he has made to the Bay Area in the last 13 years as Superintendent. Tom has done an outstanding job in these quite varied National Park Service facilities and each is among the stars of the NPS system thanks largely to his involved leadership and relationship with the different communities. Tom leaves our area in October to become Superintendent of the Pearl Harbor National Memorial in Hawaii… due largely to his highly successful leadership of these four locations here.
Given Tom's busy schedule, we have been trying to get him to come by so that the Rotary Club of Alamo could present him this Paul Harris Fellowship for his superb commitment to our greater Bay Area community. We are are pleased to present the Fellowship on behalf of all the Rotary Clubs of the area – as he has benefited our County – East to West, north and south.
The Paul Harris Fellowship is a VERY SPECIAL AWARD that is only given to folks who make significant outstanding contributions to the community and we are honored to have Tom here to receive this unique award. PDG Brian Thiessen presented the Paul Harris Fellowship to Tom.
Congratulations Tom! ...
