Past District Gov. and Mrs. Tom Ryan recently presented the President’s Citation award to the Waxahachie Rotary Club and John Hamilton, who was president during the 2005-2006 Rotary year.

Rotary International President Carl-Wilhelm Stenhammar gave the award to the club for demonstrating excellence and exemplary achievement in Rotary’s second century of service through public image initiatives and continued efforts in club, community, vocational and international service.

“The Rotary Club and its members strive to meet the goal of service above self by supporting local, state and international programs such as the Gingerbread House children’s advocacy center locally and polio eradication internationally.”
