Our Rotary Board recognizes up to six members each year for their exemplary service in one Rotary’s Five Avenues of Service which are club, community, international, new generations and vocational. During our November 25 Rotary luncheon, Donna Beestman (pictured here with Club President Ellsworth Brown) was recognized with our Rotary Club of Madison Club Service Award.
Donna joined our Rotary Club in 2002, and she was previously a member of the Wilmington, Delaware Rotary Club. She is owner and president of Career Success Strategies, LLC.
During her 13 years in our Rotary Club, Donna has been very active. She is a leader and has served on the Ethics Symposium, Scholar Mentor, Vocational Opportunities, Button Box, Photography and Member Development Committees. She is current chair of our Orientation Committee, and she is a member of several of our fellowship groups. In addition, Donna is a current board member and was previously on our board from 2005-2007.
Because of volunteers like Donna, our club continues to thrive, and we thank her for her continuing service.
President Ellsworth presented Donna with a certificate and a special pin in recognition of this award, and our club has also made a $200 gift in her name to The Foundation of Rotary International to help fund its many worthy projects and programs.
