Every year, the Rotarian of the Year Committee meets to identify and honor a member of the Rotary Club of China Lake who exemplifies the Rotary Motto of Service Above Self.
 
This year, in addition to selecting a Rotarian of the Year to be awarded in a few weeks, the committee created a new award for a Rotarian who has not received Rotarian of the Year, but through steady, quiet effort over a lifetime, has upheld, supported, and promoted the Rotary Club of China Lake.
