Wellington Rotary Dinner Celebrates Peace Initiative

Anne Caroline Valtin receives the 2021 Wellington Rotary Peace Award from Randy Pfeiffer and Tom Carreras.

Rather than holding its traditional ceremony commemorating the International Day of Peace last month, the Wellington Rotary Club held a dinner at the Wanderers Club on Thursday, Oct. 7 to celebrate its peace initiative. At the meeting, Wellington Mayor Anne Gerwig read the village’s International Day of Peace Proclamation and the 2021 Wellington Rotary Peace Award was presented to Anne Caroline Valtin, executive director of the Great Charity Challenge. Honored separately at their schools were a number of student prize winners.
