On the evening of July 12th, under the stars in beautiful and historic Banning Park, the Rotary Club of Wilmington was honored as organization of the year by the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce.
The Rotary Club was selected for it's long history of service to the community.  During the presentation of the award, the Chamber recognized the Rotary Club's commitment to fighting poverty and increasing literacy.  Specifically, the Chamber recognized the Club's commitment to provide groceries to 20 of the most neediest families in Wilmington on a monthly basis and recognized our Holiday Feast Program which feeds over 800 people from the Wilmington community on Christmas Eve.  Additionally, they recognized our commitment to improving literacy by working with our local schools and recognized Rotary's Wide World of Books which was led by our own PDG Ingo Werk.
State Assemblymember Warren Furutani was present to personally present a proclamation to our club for our efforts in the Wilmington community.

It was a great night of fellowship and well deserved recognition for our club's commitment to "Make Dreams Real" for those less fortunate in our community.
