THE SUFFOLK's FIRST CITIZEN AWARD
This distinguished service award was initiated by the Cosmopolitan Club of Suffolk in 1956. When the club disbanded in the late 1990s, they bestowed a list of “Who’s Who of Suffolk.” Based on Rotary’s international motto of Service Above Self, the Suffolk Rotary Club determined that the First Citizen Award fit well with its mission and in 2003 resumed sponsoring this exclusive award. In 2010 the Suffolk Rotary Club partnered with the Rotary Club of North Suffolk to make this award a city-wide partnership.
Service Above Self
THE OBJECT OF ROTARY is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:
- THE DEVELOPMENT OF ACQUAINTANCE as an opportunity for service:
- HIGH ETHICAL STANDARDS in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying by each Rotarian of his occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
- THE APPLICATION OF THE IDEAL OF SERVICE by every Rotarian to his personal, business and community life;
- THE ADVANCEMENT OF INTERNATIONAL UNDERSTANDING, good will, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional men and women, united in the ideal of service.
The Rotary Club of Suffolk and the North Suffolk Rotary Club would like to extend our sincere gratitude to the following key sponsors for the 2014 Suffolk's First Citizen Award Reception. Without their support the recognition of our City's First Citizen would not be possible.
