WASHINGTON NOON ROTARY | CONTRIBUTED AWARD WINNING: Spencer Stanley (left), outgoing President of Washington Noon Rotary (WNR), is presented with an honorary Rotary International Paul Harris Fellow award by Tom Payne, prior District Governor of Rotary District 7720. Spencer is recognized for his outstanding leadership at taking his club to the top of Rotary’s performance standards in most every category. Under his leadership WNR has increased its membership by over 20 percent, raised thousands of dollars for charity and undertaken several substantial community projects…most recently building a beautiful, highly used 3-person swing on the waterfront next to the new lighthouse dock attendants station and boaters/public bathrooms, and beautification of our downtown by picking up trash, weeding, mulching, trimming/pruning and planting in the planting areas in front of merchant locations along Main Street from Stewart Parkway to Market Street. (Thanks to WHDA for the huge potted plantings in the gathering area beside Sloan Insurance.) WNR is one of Washington’s largest and most active civic organizations. Each year WNR contributes funds and manpower (and womanpower) for community projects, and holds major fundraising events Smoke on the Water and the WNR Reverse Raffle to raise money for contribution to multiple worthy local charities, individuals in need, scholarships to local deserving students and community projects. WNR thanks Spencer for his leadership, his sense of humor, and his many contributions to the community and to the successes of Washington Noon Rotary.
