ROTARY RIPPLES by and for PEOPLE OF ACTION
On Friday, May 4, the Orofino Rotary Club will recognize this year’s nominees for Citizen of the Year and announce a winner.  It is always one of our toughest decisions because in reality everyone nominated is already a winner.  Being nominated for Citizen of the Year means that your friends and colleagues believe you are living Rotary’s motto of “Service above Self”.
Started in 1983, the Orofino Rotary Citizen of the Year Award seeks to recognize citizens of our local community whose volunteer efforts go above and beyond their personal interests.  While Rotarians may be considered, the award targets individual service outside of Rotary activities. 
 
ROTARY RIPPLES by and for PEOPLE OF ACTION
As part of our club’s “We’re Pushing 40!” celebration, the Rotary Club of Orofino salutes all those who have been past nominees and thanks those who have taken the time to write such glowing letters of nomination.  It is also with pride in our community and great pleasure that we again recognize our 37 past Citizens of the Year:
