The Rotary Club of Brandon earned a couple of special honors at this year's Rotary District 6890 Conference held at the Orlando World Marriott May 20-21. With a huge delegation from clubs all over the state, District Governor Tom Wagner recognized the Rotary Club of Brandon with a Presidential Citation from 2015-16 Rotary International President K.R. "Ravi" Ravindran. Only a few clubs in the entire district were recognized at this level for their work in increasing membership, service, fundraising, Foundation giving, work with Rotary youth and spreading the Rotary mission.
 
Tom Wagner also selected the Rotary Club of Brandon as the Most Improved club in the entire district for its huge membership growth and change in overall trajectory over this past year. President Chuck Burgess was at the Conference representing the club to accept the awards. These awards are a testament to the year of teamwork, hard work, planning and overall organization of the entire club membership. Through our combined efforts, committee work, service project impact, board leadership and fundraising, the Rotary Club of Brandon made tremendous strides in making a difference and leaving an impact on our community the entire Rotary year.
 
Way to go, Rotary Club of Brandon! Congratulations on a great year!
