The Rotary Club of Hamburg at its June 12 annual spring picnic honored two of its own for earning the Paul Harris Award, a high honor named for Rotary’s founder. From left, are Rotary President Jerry Bastedo, Patricia Castiglia, placing the pin on the lapel of award winner Jim Loomis, Tom Johnston and honoree Tim Hoelscher. Both men have served the Rotary Club of Hamburg and the greater community as active members. Rotary supports projects on the local, national and international level. The Hamburg club was founded in 1942 and since 2007, has coordinated Warm the Children, provides college scholarships to Hamburg and Frontier high school students and is one of the four service organizations that present the BurgerFest each July.
