Loss of a Rotarian and Friend

It is with great sadness that Dr. M. Mahmud Awan, known to many as Mudi, passed away on August 9.  Mudi joined the Sturbridge Club in 1973 and was an avid participant in what the Club did and what the Club stood for.  He became President in 1985-1986 and helped move the Club forward with his strong yet gentle leadership style.  Mudi was honored to become a Paul Harris Fellow.  Mudi was a respected Muslim and by virtue of his worldly travels and education (PhD in Economics), he brought a wealth of international understanding to our Club, also providing the Club with information and clarification on the political and economic climate in Pakistan.

We will remember Mudi as a man of his word, a caring friend, helpful and most recently, courageous in his health battle.  Our hearts and best wishes go out to his family.
