A longtime rotarian and former mayor has been honoured by the Rotary Club of Terrace.

Jack Talstra was recognized as a Paul Harris Fellow during the club's annual Installation of Officers at the Skeena Golf and Country Club on June 22.

Talstra, a member of the club for 32 years, received the recognition in tribute for his 29 years of civil service and for his demonstration of shared purpose with the objectives of the Rotary Foundation (Service Above Self).

He also served as Terrace's mayor for 23 years.

Talstra was on council first from January 5, 1976 to December 6, 1981.

He then served as mayor from Dec. 2, 1985 to Nov. 15, 2008 when he was defeated by current mayor Dave Pernarowski.
