DG Mike Goom recognized one of our outstanding leaders in District 5830 and presented PDG Lee Montgomery with the Rotary Foundation Citation for Meritorious Service.
This award recognizes Rotarians who have demonstrated outstanding active service to the Rotary Foundation over a number of years. Areas of eligible service include service on Foundation committees at the club, district and international level, participation in Foundation grants or programs and support of Ambassadorial Scholars, Rotary Peace Fellows, Group Study Exchange teams or vocational training teams. Financial contributions to our Foundation are not relevant considerations for this award. Each year, the governor of 5830 is privileged to nominate one person from 5830 for this prestigious award. For those of you who don’t know, there are 535 Rotary districts in the world and so, at most, there can only be 535 of these awards given each year.
