At the Rotary District Conference Fuquay-Varina Downtown Rotary Club was presented with the Changemaker Award. This this one of two awards that can be given by Rotary International President, Kalyan Banerjee, representing 1.2 million members in 34,000 clubs in 130 countries.
The award recognizes the club for “making an extraordinary impact during the 2011-2012 year” for work in the Rotary Avenues of Service. To be eligible for the award the club had to complete a minimum of three service projects in each of five categories: Club, Vocation, Community, International and New Generations. The activities could include membership growth and training, career days for youth, emphasis on high ethical standards, sponsor an International Youth Exchange Student, support international service projects and complete at least three community projects. The club cherishes this award and is now working to earn the award a second year.
The Rotary members would also like to take this opportunity to thank member Wray Stephens for donating two gifts on behalf of the Fuquay-Varina Downtown Rotary Club which were presented at the Rotary District Conference.
