Rotarians promote and foster high ethical standards in business and professions and promote the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations.  Each year Rotary presents an award to someone in the community who has exemplified outstanding professional achievement while maintaining very high ethical standards. Last year's recipient of this award was Charley Marenghi.

There will be a cash bar available from 6:30 pm to 7:00 pm followed by a buffet dinner and the awards presentation. The cost for the event is $40 per person. Reservations for the event can be made by calling either Jenny Lennon at 203-231-3093 or John McCormack at 203-651-9634.
