George Scheetz, Jack Jangeles and Dick Larson presented Darlene Marcusson with the Batavia Rotary Club’s first annual Vocational Service Award in recognition of her contribution to the welfare of the community over the years of her work at Lazarus House. The Rotary Club of Batavia established a new Vocational Service Award to recognize the importance of high ethical standards and public values to honor an individual who exemplifies such traits. Vocational Service is the banner by which Rotarians “recognize the worthiness of all useful occupations” and demonstrate a commitment to “high ethical standards in all businesses and professions.” 

Dick Larson announced that $1000 has been donated in Darlene Marcusson’s name to the Paul Harris Foundation, and that she has been designated a Paul Harris Fellow.
