Awards given at the Coconut Grove Rotary Club

Don Kesler, president of the Coconut Grove Rotary congratulated the Rotary membership for awards the club received from the District. The club received the Outstanding Project Award for their work with the Titans Youth Football and Cheerleading teams. Those members mostly responsible for this success are Steve Arch, Tony Golden and Rene Garcia. Don also recognized the many members who volunteered weekly to work in the concession stand raising money for the team.

Another district award received was for the best newsletter by a club smaller than 30 members. Don recognized the editor, Duane Crisp and the primary contributor Frances “Randy” Lakel.

Duane Crisp also won the award for Rotarian of the Year for his work on the newsletter also for being parking project chair and volunteering for other projects. This report came from the newsletter, which Duane emails out monthly.

Rick Klein was recognized with a Leadership Award for his guidance in setting up the initial parking project plan, chairing the Focus Committee, a member of the Foundation Board, being a Past President, and always being around to help and guide in whatever they are attempting to do.

Tim Crowther has been providing planning books for the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade children at Tucker Elementary. Don honored Tim for this work and allowed Tim to update the membership regarding this project funded by the club. Tim showed the audience one of the 250 organizers. In some cases, this is the first book that a child might have owned. 

The Rotary's grant applications to National, as well as District Rotary, are put together by Anita Sandler and Donna Sweeney. These ladies provide the much needed skills in gathering the needed materials and knowledge required in submitting these applications. All grants are scrutinized very closely and many resubmits are required to close a grant. Anita and Donna can do this without the resubmissions, and Don recognizes the appreciation our club has for their efforts.

Special recognition also went to Margaret Nee for her help in securing parking lots for the parking project. Her employer, PointeGroup is so kind in allowing the club use of their parking lots for this fundraiser.

And finally, Don recognized Steve Arch for the endless efforts Steve gives our club. From his work with the Titans, his annual Derby Day fundraiser, his 12 Good Men of Dade County award he received this year from Ronald McDonald House®, and everything in between, Steve brings out the Rotarian standard for which they all strive.
