Fred Black (1917-2007) chaired the Guelph Rotary Club Expansion Committee that resulted in the Rotary Club of Guelph-Trillium being chartered in 1991.
The Fred Black Scholarships are named in his honour. Fred was often present at the meetings when the scholarships were awarded to community high school graduates pursuing further education. The scholarships remain a key, annual youth initia- tive in the club.
Fred joined the Rotary Club of Guelph in 1961, where he served as President in 1967-68 and was District Governor in 1981-82. He died May 2, 2007, shortly after his 90th birthday.
A partner of Black, Shoemaker, Robinson and Donaldson Land Surveyors, he was active in many other community organizations. An avid curler, he was an integral part of Fellowship Rotary Curling and a regular member at the Guelph Curling Club until 2006.
