Shawnee Rotary Club honors local sculptor Charles Goslin

Earlier this month, Rotarians Joni Pflumm, Linda Leeper and Robb Garr honored renowned local sculptor Charles Goslin with several accolades to celebrate his contributions to Rotary and the wider Shawnee community.

Goslin’s works are on display throughout and in the Kansas City metro area. Some of his sculptures depict Shawnee history. The Rotary Club dedicated one of Goslin’s coins in 2004 to commemorate Rotary’s 100th anniversary. His sculpture “Lending a Hand” is on display at Rotary Plaza in Listowel Park at 71st and Quivira at Shawnee.

Goslin, who hosted Rotary representatives at his home, was accompanied by his daughter, Cathy Goslin Pulta, and his wife, Elizabeth. Rotary Director of Community Services Joni Pflumm presented Liz with a flower arrangement and club president Robb Garr named Goslin an honorary member of the Shawnee Rotary Club.

“The sculpture that embraces the world and its united force to reach all of the underprivileged and for that matter all of the people in the world who have contributed,” Goslin said of his Rotary sculpture. “I feel like Rotary has such a positive influence on the business world. And we need it with all the negatives that are happening. “

Pflumm also presented Goslin with a Paul Harris Fellow Award and an accompanying pin. This award is usually given to members of Rotary who have donated $ 1,000 to The Rotary Foundation. However, the award may also be presented to non-Rotarians who have distinguished themselves.
through selfless actions and valuable contributions, according to the club.
