This time the Rotary International Public Image Resource Group has recognized the Rotary Club of Glens Falls as a leader in improving the image of Rotary. It was one of only 15 Outstanding Achievement Awards presented worldwide by Rotary International. Rotary consists of 32,000 clubs in over 200 nations and areas worldwide.
This all stems from the use of a three hour telethon last April to promote Rotary's "Humanity in Motion" campaign and the club's Water Walk fundraising efforts. The telethon aired on local station TV8 and was the brainchild of local personality Charles Adams.
The club used this unique media vehicle as part of its Water Walk fundraising effort which culminated in the highly sucessful Pure Water Walk on May 12th.
The club has raised thousands of dollars to seed pure water programs in third world countries.
The award was presented by Past District Covernor Anne Cargile at the September 20th meeting of the club.
The Glens Falls Rotary Club is a community service and business professional organization aiding charitable causes both locally and worldwide.
