The Sunrise Rotary Club of Marco Island is accepting nominations for its quarterly “Unsung Hero” program. The Unsung Hero has gone above and beyond the call of duty. He or she will be a special person who has done extra special things for the Marco Island community without receiving pay or expecting praise or recognition.
The Club’s Board of Directors will vote on the award, but the nominee cannot be a Rotarian. The recipient will be a person who embodies the Rotary motto, “Puts service above self.”
The nominee must reside in Marco Island, Florida at least six months, or be employed and working on Marco Island at least thirty hours per week, or is nominated for service provided on Marco Island.
Chairman Bill Morris stated, “Our first recipients epitomize unselfish service to our community. We are excited to present this award to another worthy person.”
Nominees will be selected for community work that is not related to Rotary activities. The recipient will be someone who has not generally been honored and recognized by a public organization or testimonial. The recipient will also generally be unknown to the majority of the community.
The Unsung Hero will be recognized by award of a plaque, a $100 donation by the Sunrise Rotary to a charity of the Unsung Hero’s choice, and a donation of 20 polio vaccines to Rotary International.
Nomination forms may be obtained from the Sunrise Rotary at www.marcosunriserotary.com, or from Chairman Bill Morris, 247 North Collier Blvd. Suite 202, Marco Island, Florida 34145 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Once completed, forms should be submitted to Chairman Bill Morris.
