Wellington Rotarians Nordstrom And Abbate Receive Paul Harris Awards

The Rotary Club of Wellington recently presented two of its members with the prestigious Paul Harris Award, given to members who donate $1,000 or more to the Rotary Foundation, the charitable arm of Rotary International.

Harris was the founder of Rotary in 1905. Since then, Rotary has grown to more than 1.2 million members in more than 200 countries worldwide.

Henrik Nordstrom, currently secretary on the executive board, received his fifth Paul Harris Award. He has been with the club for four years and is very active. Additionally, Nordstrom will serve as president-elect in 2014-15. He works in information technology and lives in Wellington with his wife, GiGi, and son, Bradley.

Dan Abbate received his first Paul Harris award. He is fairly new to the club and relocated from Chicago about six months ago and has been an active member of the club. Abbate works in business automation and lives in Wellington with his wife, Kelly and son, Winston.

The Rotary Club of Wellington is proud of the accomplishments and generosity of these members. If other members of the community are interested in donating to the club or are interested in joining the club, contact Bob Salerno at (561) 512-8247 or bobultracleaners@comcast.net.
