Local Rotarians Honor Police and Fire Departments

The Rotary Clubs of Orange, Orange North and Orange Sunrise held the 36th Annual Orange Police and Fire Recognition Awards on March 4, 2010 at The Villa in Orange.

The three clubs work together to plan this annual event.

Representatives from the Orange County Board of Supervisors, State Assembly and State Senate attend, as well as all members of the Orange City Council.  These groups honor the Police and Fire personnel, who are presented with plaques of recognition by the Rotary Clubs.

The crowd of more than 150 was entertained by singer Robbie Britt before awards were presented by Fire Chief Bart Lewis and Police Chief Bob Gustafson.  The event was reported in the Orange County Register and the article can be found here.
