Stephen Zabor recently visited the Rotary Club of Hillcrest (Sunrise) and presented several club members with prestigious awards.

ImageKathleen Mekesa was recognized with the A.Z. Baker Award for her leadership of our club this past year.  Qualifying for the A.Z. Baker Award is a significant achievement and reflects broad based service to building stronger and more sustainable communities locally and around the world. Kathleen was congratulated for the service the Rotary Club of Hillcrest Sunrise provided in the 2011-2012 Rotary year.

Jackie Minotas was recognized with the Paul Harris Fellow award.  The PAUL HARRIS Fellow is an award given to thosImagee who have given $1000 dollars possibly over several years to the foundation or by a sponsor that has given the money in someone’s name for extraordinary services rendered.  It is one of the most prestigious awards in Rotary and thereby named after the founder of Rotary, Paul Harris.

Giving any sum of money to the Rotary Foundation makes you a part of the eradication of Polio, a partner in creating PEACE, a person who supports Clean Water and Sanitation where water is worth more than gold, it is measured in LIVES. It makes you someone who believes that all babies, children and mom's should have good medical resources, micro-credit and equal rights.
