Congratulations to BBRC and Forest Ridge Interact for Presidential Citations

We had the pleasure of welcoming our current District Governor (Alan Merry) and our Past District Governor (Alex Hopkins) who both came to congratulate BBRC and Forest Ridge Interact on securing the Presidential Citation for Rotary year 2017-18.

Alex Hopkins awarding Presidential Citation to Kaj Pedersen

The Rotary Citation recognizes Rotary clubs that support each of our strategic priorities by completing certain activities. Clubs have the entire Rotary year to achieve the citation’s goals.  This year the membership of both groups were able to successfully come together and achieve the goals of the citation, in what is truly a group effort.  Well done to both groups.

Furthermore, Forest Ridge Interact, is the first Interact group to secure Presidential Citation in District 5030.  Well done to this wonderful group of young Rotarians, who now number some 100 members.  They will continue to do well, especially as they continue to look for ways that they can make an impact in their community – this year’s focus is on homelessness.  It is great to see their team organize around an issue that is clearly a crisis in our region.
