Bill LaPlace Memorial Golf Outing Scheduled for June 20
The Rotary Club of Cleveland has announced that it will host a golf outing in memory of PDG Bill LaPlace on Tuesday, June 2, 2023, at Coppertop Golf Course in Valley City, Ohio. Bill was a 50-plus year member of the Rotary Club of Cleveland, which he joined in 1968. He served the club as president in 1986-87, as president of the Cleveland Rotary Foundation in 1990-91, and as treasurer of the Foundation for more than 30 years. Bill was District 6630 Governor in 1992-93, and he continued for many years as treasurer of the district.
A proud graduate of The Ohio State University, Bill not only earned an undergraduate degree in accounting and an MBA at OSU, but he interrupted his studies for a total of five years to serve as an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps. Following graduate school, Bill passed the CPA exam and began a lifelong career at the accounting firm of Haskins & Sells (now Deloitte) in Cleveland, where he retired after many years as a partner. Bill was active in many professional, civic, and social organizations. Bill passed away on January 31, 2023, in Columbus, OH, at the age of 95.
All District 6630 Rotarians are invited to honor PDG Bill LaPlace by participating in the golf outing. The price is $95 per person, which covers greens fee, cart, lunch, and a buffet dinner. The shotgun-start scramble will begin at 9:00 a.m. Bag lunches will be served at the turn, and dinner will begin at about 3:00 p.m. For those who only want to attend the dinner, the price will be $30. Beer and soft drinks are included with both meals.
