Assistant Governor Lynne presents Past President Dave with the Presidential Citation and Governor's Achievement Award in recognition of the work of the club during the 2013 - 2014 Rotary year.


At the 2014 conference of Rotary District 7010, the Rotary Club of Bridgenorth Ennismore Lakefield was recognized with the Presidential Citation (with distinction) 2013 – 2014 and the Governor’s Achievement Award 2013 – 2014 for outstanding service to the local and global communities and for upholding the ideals of Rotary. 

The Presidential Citation and Governor’s Achievement Award recognize Rotary clubs for achieving a variety of accomplishments that help them become stronger, enhance humanitarian service in the local and international communities and strengthen their network through the family of Rotary. By qualifying for the Presidential Citation, clubs contribute to Rotary's strategic goals and multiply the impact of their good work through the collective focus of more than 34,000 Rotary Clubs worldwide.

The BEL Club was congratulated for meeting these goals.  During the 2013 - 2014 year, the club was visible in the community in the continued development and maintenance of Rotary Park, stewardship of the Bridgenorth Rotary Trail, “Adopt a Family” Christmas project, Super Spring Clean Up and partnership with the local schools.  The club also partnered with the newly founded Ennismore Horticultural Society to celebrate the Christmas season with a tree lighting ceremony and carol sing.

BEL Rotary was engaged with youth through the sponsorship of students to the Rotary Leadership Weekend, Adventures in Citizenship program and the sponsorship of children to the OPP summer camp.

 On the international scene, BEL Rotarians travelled to Cambodia, to distribute bicycles to school age children, providing them with a means to get to school each day and continued to work toward the eradication of polio world-wide.

The BEL Club is proud of its accomplishments.  The success is no accident: it depends on the strength, dedication and commitment of every member as well as the support of their many community partners.  The club extends a heart felt thank you to the sponsors, prize donors and volunteers who make their service to the local and international communities possible.
