This special Calgary South Club internal awards program was established in 2006 to recognize the outstanding contribution of club members who take on significant responsibilities and commitments in furthering the work of our club.

The award is named the “Cleven Award” in honour of and recognition of the first president of the Rotary Club of Calgary South chartered as the Manchester Rotary Club in 1955. Harry Cleven was a very active Calgary community leader and a well-known and respected business man. He was one of 62 people who were killed in the crash of a TransCanada Airlines flight which crashed on Mt. Slesse near Chilliwack on December 9th 1956. He made many positive contributions to the startup and a strong foundation for our Rotary Club.

We already have twenty-three members in this special program and expect to induct another two or three this year. New members are nominated by club members with a review by a committee, followed by our club Board of Directors support
