Despite Covid's rude interruption, Rotary Club of Lincoln made good things happen in the 2019-2020 Rotary year.   A year we'll long remember.   For this year we had to cancel our luncheon meetings in mid-March 2020.     
In spite of Covid-19, our club received many District 5180 awards for our accomplishments. Some highlights were:
  • Our very own Joann Hilton was selected as Rotarian of the Year, an honor long overdue.  Her awesome work within the Club, the District and the Community are highlighted in the attached nomination paperwork. See separate announcement on the website. 
  • Our Club received the Governor's Citation as a top performing club in District 5180.
  • We were awarded runner-up in the district large club category (more than 50 members).
  • Six gold medals were received for our Youth Services, Community Service, International Service, Membership, Marketing, and Vocational Service activities.
  • Two silver medals were received for our Foundation and Administration efforts.
  • We received a Survivors Award for making it through the year in spite of Covid.  There were some district clubs that did not!
  • We were recognized by Rotary International for our contributions to the End Polio Now program.
