Oct. 5, 2003 — St. Thomas attorney Tom Bolt was installed recently as president of the new provisional Rotary Club of St. Thomas Sunrise.
Bolt, who is managing attorney of Tom Bolt & Associates, was joined at the installation by Ron Sherwood, assistant district governor, and other officers of the club, including Arthur Starr, president-elect; Ron Magnuson, secretary; Rosemary Sauter Frett, treasurer; and John Murphy, sergeant-at-arms.
New members of the Rotary St. Thomas Sunrise board of directors include Jeffrey Boschulte, Paul Ferreras, Herb Horwitz, Vinnie Mohanani, and Diana Parker.
The new St. Thomas Rotary club regularly meets at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday mornings at the Hard Rock Café and is currently recruiting new members. The club anticipates receiving its charter from Rotary International later this year when District Governor Keith Daley visits St. Thomas, said a release.
A Rotary member since 1984, Bolt has been active in V.I. civic affairs. He is immediate past president of both the Rotary Club of St. Thomas II and the V.I. Bar Association. He serves as chairman of the V.I. Uniform Law Commission and is a member of the V.I. Law Revision Commission.
