During this month of Thanksgiving, the Rotary Club of Rockville presented a Paul Harris award to Susanne Beason in recognition of her tireless efforts to ensure the success of our 2023 Fall Family Fest.
Susanne worked alongside other volunteers to recruit sponsors, post signs, negotiate with vendors and organize decorations. Susanne also added a bit of German authenticity by contributing her family recipes and patiently coaching her fellow Rotarians and Maple Grove volunteers on the proper preparation of (very yummy) Bavarian pretzels, sauerkraut and vegan soup.
Thanks in large part to Susanne's efforts, our combined organizations raised almost $10,000 which will be directed towards worthy causes within our Rockville and Global communities. 
Thank you, Susanne!  Wir sind dir dankbar!

Today we welcomed Jennifer Johnston-Marius to our Rockville Rotary family.    Prior to moving to Connecticut, Jennifer served as a Rotarian in Pennsylvania.  Now Director of the Rockville Public Library, Jennifer supports the library's mission to "enrich, enlighten and inform our diverse population".  Jennifer's experience will certainly complement a core cause of Rotary - that of supporting basic education and literacy.
As a Rockville Rotarian, Jennifer looks forward to broadening her involvement in our community through public service.
Pictured above, Rockville Rotary President, Justin Hicks, presents Jennifer Johnston-Marius with her Rockville Rotary nametag.
