The Rotary Club of Orange Plaza received top honors in the “small club” category at the 2015 Rotary District 5320 annual conference. The club received “firsts” for club service, vocational service, youth service and public image.
In presenting the awards, Governor Nominee Designate Ian Hicks singled out the club’s support of Elwyn California, an organization providing vocational training and job placement for the disabled. Orange Plaza also builds vocational skills at the high school level through the signature “Mentor Meals” program at El Modena High School. For continuing to focus on youth programs during this Rotary year, the club was also recognized for its “Book Doctor” project in partnership with its sponsored Interact Club at El Mo High.
These projects and more are publicized via the club’s active and redesigned website, its club Facebook page and the Facebook page dedicated to the Orange Plaza Car Show, the club’s annual fundraiser in the City of Orange.
Rotary Governor Jim Paddock presented the awards to President Tracey Curtis at the conference luncheon on May 2nd.
