April Beston, Rotarian of the Year
This year’s recipient of Rotarian of the Year should not come as a surprise to anyone. April embodies the ideals of what this award is meant to recognize. She is a spouse, parent and friend to us all. Besides being Treasurer of our club, she is also District 7890 Treasurer. She manages a career, homelife, a business of her own, is active in her church and spends countless hours behind the scenes to accomplish numerous Rotary functions for which little recognition is offered, until today. We are extremely proud to call this person a friend and are equally proud to name April Beston 2019 Rotarian of the Year.
