In loving memory of ShelterBox and Rotary leader Ken Thompson

A Leader in Action

As a committed Rotarian and the District Governor of 6840, Ken Thompson put Service Above Self and worked tirelessly to help the global community.

For years, he served as the ShelterBox Ambassador for his District, generating funds and awareness for Rotary International’s project partner in disaster relief.
