The Ray C. Sherman
Community Service Award

Award Certificate
This award, named after our own Past President Ray Sherman, is to recognize persons in our community who have given of themselves for the benefit of all. Along with the recognition given by Geneseo Rotary, a $500 cash donation is given in honor of the recipient to that organization that benefited from the honoree's activity. These people, not necessarily members of Rotary, have exhibited the true spirit of the Rotary International motto of "Service Above Self"
