Two of our own were recognized last weekend at the District 5870 Conference for their outstanding service and commitment to Rotary.

Ron Garland was selected to the 2012 D5870 Roll of Fame and George Lourigan received the Foundation Service Award.

Induction into the Roll of Fame is the highest award conferred by District 5870 and is intended to recognize those Rotarians who have distinguished themselves by outstanding service to their clubs, communities, and District 5870. The qualifications include having been a Rotarian in one (1) or more clubs for five (5) years; serving as an officer or director; maintaining an 80% or better attendance record; attendance at one or more Rotary clubs other than the club of the honoree; attendance at not less than two District Conferences and not less than two District Assemblies; chaired or served on more than one committee or subcommittee in more than one (1) of the four avenues of service; and above all else, outstanding service to Rotary.

The Foundation Service Award is a Rotary International award given by the District Governor for service above self rendered in promoting donor support for the RI Foundation and like support for Foundation programs funded by the Foundation. The Governor also looks at service rendered at the District level in terms of supporting Foundation training and the Foundation Banquet.

Congratulations to both Ron and George for their awards! Thank you both for your hard work and support of Rotary.
