The Rotary Club of Peachtree City was recognized as the Club of the Year by District 6900 for Category IV. The Club of the Year award recognizes clubs for Foundation Giving; Youth Program Services; Local, District and Global Service Projects; Social Media and Public Image; Club Participation; Membership Growth and Leadership.
While the club was chosen as Club of the Year Runner-Up several times (1994-95; 1996-97; 1997-98; 2001-02; 2006-07; 2007-08), they have only been selected as the winner 2 times previously – in 1993-94 under the leadership of the club’s first female president – Mrs. Frances Meaders, and again in 1995-96 under the leadership of the club’s only past president that also went on to become the District Governor – Mr. Bill McDonald.
This was a great accomplishment of the club and their leadership team as well as a special recognition for our community at large for all of the support of the many projects that were done over the last year.
