Kintore, Kemnay & District: Citizen of the Year Award
"As outgoing President of the Rotary Club of Kintore, Kemnay and District, I was personally delighted when Rachel Lewis was chosen to be the recipient of our Citizen of the Year Award for 2017 – 2018. Rachel is well known and highly respected for her work with young people in the community. Additionally, Rachel has worked with children in Kenya, a project for which the Club has, on two occasions, given her financial support. Rachel was presented with her award by District Governor Elect, Alistair McNair, at our Annual Club Assembly and Presidential Handover held at Thainstone House Hotel on Thursday 19 July."
