Rotary offers cash prize with its annual gong

| 27/09/2010

(CNS): Not everyone can gat an OBE or a knighthood and many deserving individuals may well miss out on the country’s own national honours too, but with Rotary International Vocational Service month coming up service club members could still make the grade for that gong. Members will be recognized in October for the contribution they have made to Cayman Islands community and the public are now being invited to nominate people for the award. The gongs will be granted to two individuals at the end of October of this year and as well as the service honour winners also get a  CI$500 cash prize.

The award, which Rotary Central has been presenting to members of the local community for just over a decade, is one of the key ways in which Rotary recognizes those who have made a contribution to their local community. Nominations need to be in by 12 October and the awards will be announced at Rotary Central’s regular Tuesday meeting on 26 October.
“We are very pleased to start our nomination process for this year and eager to review the various submissions from the community,” said Wil Pineau, President of Rotary Central.
Larry Tibbetts, Director of Vocational Services of Rotary Central explained that the Vocational Month award serves to recognize Caymanians who have been doing outstanding work in their respective professions, many times going above and beyond the call of duty, but who remained unrecognized.
Anyone requiring further information on how to nominate someone from their local community should contact Mr. Larry Tibbetts at  or on 916 8506
