Awards

* Rotarian of the YearOver the course of our history, our club has named a Rotarian of the Year during many years. This practice was resurrected by Rotarian Jack Ridenour, who was a silent warrior, and who was one of the initial supporters of our club’s Foundation. Those who have been named Rotarian of the Year have gone above and beyond for the club during the year. We were also able to find names of some past honorees in our club archives.

Past Winners:

* Ron Wingate

* Doug Morton

* Red Rose Award — our club’s award is actually named the Frank Traviglia Red Rose Award. It was named for Frank because he was the only District Governor from our club (for a long time), and he was a champion of this cause. This, of course, is where we recognize a non-Rotarian volunteer in our community. We encourage club members to submit a nominee, but it is often hard for people to think of someone. And some years, we have more than one nomination, so when this happens, we usually select one, and keep the other one on file for consideration the next year (except one year where the Club President decided to recognize as a winner everyone who was nominated).

* Rotary Hero — a District Governor started this some years ago after getting the idea from one of her DG classmates. She designed it as a way to recognize outstanding Rotarians publicly at the District Conference, with the added benefit of giving people more reasons to attend the District Conference. Each District Governor since then has decided to continue this each year at the District Conference. The District asks each club to select a “Rotary Hero” from their club, using whatever criteria the club wants to use. The Rotary Heroes are invited to attend the District Conference, where they are publicly recognized.
