ROTARY CLUB PRESENTS ITS 2018 ETHICS AWARD
Allen Harrison, Owner and President of Battlefield Homes, Fredericksburg, was presented the 2018 Ethics in Business Award on June 27th at the annual installation banquet for the Rappahannock-Fredericksburg Rotary Club.  This award is given annually to a local business person who demonstrates the highest ethical standards in his or her business practices and adheres to the Rotary Four-Way Test.  Harrison was recognized for his honesty, integrity and the way he treats his customers in a fair and caring manner.  In addition to receiving the ethics award, Harrison was named a Paul Harris Fellow, which carries a $1,000 donation in his name toward the eradication of polio, production of clean water and the promotion of peace worldwide.
The club was officially chartered as the Rappahannock-Fredericksburg Rotary club on June 19, 1985, which makes this year our 33rd anniversary.  Our Club is very fortunate to have seven active Charter Members, and they joined with another local Charter Member (and former Rotarian) at our morning meeting on April 18, 2018 to celebrate and be recognized.  Left to Right: Roy Strohl, Joe Wilson, Dick Ayers , Sam Harding,
Keith Wampler, John Coker, and Blanton Massey.
 
Recently we welcomed two new women members to the Rappahannock Rotary Club.  It has only been a little over twenty years since women were first welcomed into Rotary.  The 1989 Council on Legislation vote to admit women into Rotary clubs worldwide remains a watershed moment in the history of Rotary.
