The Member Recognition Committee was established by our Board of Directors to annually recommend members who have exhibited outstanding service in one of Rotary’s Five Avenues of Service: Service to our Club; Service to the Community; Service to the international community; to vocational service; and to youth service.
On behalf of the Rotary Club of Madison, I am honored to announce that Jim Christensen has been selected to receive the Community Service Award.
In the 30 years that Jim has been a member of our club, he has served us well in a variety of ways.
He has served on our club’s board of directors, has been a mentor to several Rotary Scholars, has been a regular volunteer at our annual Ethics Symposium, and he currently chairs our Member Retention Committee.
We see him at work within our Club and on behalf of our club in the community. He has been involved over the longest period of time with the Community Projects Committee, where he has served as its chair and regularly volunteers in its group activities within the community. He helps organize and contributes to our holiday gift project for children in need. He has organized and participated in a number of tree planting projects at area schools.
Additionally, he volunteered at Ironman, at Habitat for Humanity, and the picnic we held at Concerts on the Square for One City School students. Jim is a champion in helping our Rotary Club make a difference in our community.
For Jim’s continual service over 30 years, our Club has made a $200 gift in his name to The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International for his Community Service.
Thank you, Jim!
