ALPHARETTA, Ga. — The Windward Association of Retired Men recently presented its 17th annual Founder’s Award to Bob Meyers for his “record of exceptional service to our organization and community.” The award was presented jointly by former Founder’s Award recipients Tom Trace, Bob O’Hagan and Paul Barrow. The ceremony took place at the Golf Club of Georgia during WARM’s annual Holiday Party.
In presenting the award, Tom Trace highlighted Meyers’ instrumental role in a number of WARM and community activities since joining WARM in 2001, 11 years after the group’s founding.
Meyers studied at the University of Colorado and UCLA. As a diplomat, he served in Panama, Peru, Chile, Belgium and Switzerland. He spent one year as a special assistant to the White House Staff Director under President Jimmy Carter and served five years as the U.S. Spokesman to the Tokyo Round of Multilateral Trade Negotiations in Geneva.
Meyers is also the author of two books, “Barns of Old Milton County” and “Irish Pubs in America,” the latter in collaboration with Ron Wallace.
