Past President Perry presents Rotary presidential citation to club Pearl Rotary Club's Perry Swanson (2020-21 president) proudly shared the Rotary International Presidential Citation which the club achieved during his tenure (9/21 breakfast meeting).
"This is all about achieving goals," Perry said, noting that the club met more than the required 13 accomplishments on the citation list.
Those included securing community service partnerships, he said, and making contributions to the Rotary Foundation and sponsoring a Rotaract Club.
"I personally took this as a challenge," he said, "especially in the year of Covid." He was also clear that this was not just the president's individual award. "This is recognition for all of you," he said to Rotarians gathered at the Ecotrust and to those attending on Zoom. "It's to all the movers and shakers in our club."
