We frequently get thanked for all our efforts regarding charity, fund-raising and community support over many areas. We have just achieved the prestigious Rotary Citation. It reads: Congratulations! Your club has earned the Rotary Citation, for 2020-21, the most significant award a Rotary club can achieve.
The story and the facts: It came to us in a completely unexpectedly email from Rotary HQ in Evanston, USA. It stated: “During a year that was challenging for many Rotarians around the world, your club demonstrated a commitment to achieve its goals, which ultimately helps strengthen Rotary and shape our future”. The email linked to our Rotary Citation certificate which we are encouraged to “display proudly to celebrate our club’s achievement”.
To be eligible for the Rotary Citation, clubs need to begin the year as active clubs in good standing and achieve 13 major goals out of a potential 25. Such goals include amongst many others:
The Rotary Club of Billericay was one of only four clubs in our District to achieve this award, and we are delighted that another of these four clubs is our friends at the Rotary Club of Basildon.
