tabs box bottom border

The Liberty Rotary Club has announced that it will honor Liberty High School teacher Penny Medina and Liberty Board of Education member Daniel Parkhurst during its Annual Recognition Brunch on Sunday, April 3 from 1-3 p.m. at the New Hope Community Banquet Hall in Loch Sheldrake, New York.

Mrs. Medina will be one of four recipients of the Hummingbird Award, which honors individuals who demonstrate that one single person can make a difference in everyday life. The Hummingbird Award stems from a fable about a devoted hummingbird who “does what it can” by attempting to extinguish a fire with just one drop at a time. As adviser of the district’s Interact Club, she consistently works tirelessly to improve her part of the world and encourages her students and peers to do the same.

Mr. Parkhurst will be one of five recipients being recognized as the club’s newest Paul Harris fellows. The Paul Harris Fellow recognition acknowledges individuals who contributed at least $1,000 to the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International.

These donations, as well as Sunday’s brunch, will go toward the club’s Haiti Clean Water Project, which helps provide clean potable water to Haitian families in need.

Suggested donation for the brunch is $15 per person. Additional donations will be accepting for the club’s clean water project. RSVPs are due by Monday, March 28.

To purchase a ticket or request more information, please contact Liberty Rotary Club Treasurer Gary Siegel at (845) 798-2188 or
