Ruth Burston, wife of Past President Len Burston (1981/82) celebrated her 100th birthday on Friday!

Len was a Group Captain at Glenbrook RAAF Base and a very popular member of our Rotary Club of Lower Blue Mountains.  Ruth was involved with Inner Wheel and they both supported many Lower Blue Mountains initiatives.

Bob Aitken joined LBM Rotary from Parkes in 1984 whilst the Burstons were still heavily involved and described them both as outstanding contributors.

Ruth worked in son David’s legal office in Penrith after Len died and was well known to several other club members.

John and Susan Wakefield and Bob and Ann Aitken organised flowers, champagne and a card from Lower Blue Mountains and took them to her at Jacaranda Lodge in Springwood on Friday morning – much to her enjoyment.

The family were due to visit Ruth in the afternoon – and share the delight of a message from her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth 11.
