District Governor Innes Richards attended Apalachicola Rotary on Sept. 24, 2019. Mrs. Richards attended the luncheon meeting to present Rotarian John Sink, above, with a framed recognition of his 50 years in Rotary service.


The Rev. Dr. John Sink is a retired senior pastor of Atlanta’s oldest Methodist church, Sardis Methodist Church. He served 30 years in the US Navy and was chancellor at Penn State University’s Fayette Campus. Sink served as a Rotary past president. He has served on numerous boards throughout the Panhandle and was pastoral care director of Weems Memorial Hospital.
