The Rotary Club of Swampscott recently recognized Swampscott Middle School student Joe Turcotte with a Quest for Excellence award.
The award is given to a student who is community minded and demonstrated leadership qualities; is respectful of their peers, teachers and mentors; and is a good friend and good student but not necessarily an A student.
Rotary club membership represents a cross-section of the community's business and professional men and women. The world's Rotary clubs meet weekly and are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds.
The main objective of Rotary is service — in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world.
Rotarians develop community service projects that address many of today's most critical issues, such as children at risk, poverty and hunger, the environment, illiteracy, and violence.
They also support programs for youth, educational opportunities and international exchanges for students, teachers, and other professionals, and vocational and career development. The Rotary motto is Service Above Self.
The Swampscott Rotary Club is always accepting new members. The Club meeting every Wednesday at the Red Rock at 12:15. For more information about becoming involved please call Club President Laura King at 781-598-7451
