The Huron Township Rotary was recognized during Wednesday’s board meeting for serving the community for 80 years.
Trustee John Chont presented an award during the meeting to Scott Bland, rotary president.
“This community should be proud of this organization for what they have done and what they are doing bringing this community together,” Chont said.
Bland said during the meeting that continual support from the community has been the reason why the Rotary has existed for so long.
“Our club would not be possible without the involvement and support of the local community,” Bland said. “We are grateful for that.”
The club, which is made up of 23 community members, serves the Huron-area in several ways throughout the year.
Some of the projects they organize include providing scholarships for Huron School Districts students, donating to elementary school reading programs, and the group maintains the Veterans Memorial in downtown New Boston.
Bland said Rotary International has been serving communities for over 110 years, and that there are over 1.2 million Rotary members in the world.
“We look forward to serving this community well into the future,” he said.
