When I was invited to become a member or the Florissant Rotary Club...Jim Fischer was one of the first to welcome me. He served for many years and was known through-out the country for his committment to Rotary. Jim always gave new members those little talks about what the true meaning of Rotary was about 'Service Above Self' During lunch we all enjoyed some of Jim's stories from the years of fellowship as a Rotarian. Jim Fischer will be missed although, God has one of the finest men with him now!
