"Service above self" is a motto espoused by Rotarians around the world -- and it's one that the Detroit Lakes Noon Rotary Club's 2011-12 Rotarian of the Year truly lives by.


From his days as a rescue firefighter with the United States Air Force, to recent efforts such as volunteering with the Rotary Club's annual blood screening program, LeRoy Squires has always been someone who innately understood the concept of giving back.
