The life and service of Edwardsville resident Jack Butler were honored at the Edwardsville Rotary Club meeting Thursday, during which friends and city figures offered their appreciation.
Butler and his father were the owners of Butler Chevrolet located at the corner of Vandalia and Main Street, the current location of Walgreens.
Current and former city of Edwardsville officials gathered to acknowledge the community service. Mayor Hal Patton presented a proclamation naming Sunday, March 10, as Jack Butler Day in the city. (Shown in photo).
Butler, among many accomplishments, has been a member of Rotary for 60 years, including perfect attendance.
