Community Service Award

Community Service Award

  • Presented to a deserving citizen, who has provided outstanding service through volunteer work or financial support to organizations and / or families in need in our community.
  • Nominees can be from any of the citizens of the Colchester County area.
  • Very unusual for Rotarians to receive this recognition.
  • Nominations are solicited from Rotarians and the general public.  A request for nominations can be made via our Weekly Bulletin and an ad in the local paper (early January).
  • The Recognition Committee receives and makes nominations and selects the successful recipient (if any) each year.
  • Normally presented at the February Charter Night.  (Recipient has opportunity to express thanks at the microphone)
  • Concurrently, the recipient may also receive a Paul Harris Fellowship.  (The Club would acquire this by using its accumulated PHF points at RI.)
