Palo Alto Rotarians Receive High Honors

BillBUsse

Bill Busse

Our Rotarian and friend, Bill Busse, was honored by Avenidas senior services agency with their "Lifetime of Achievement" award.  Bill was recognized for his hard work and optimism in both his architect professional and community service.  Bill has served on the Palo Alto Housing Commission, as vice president of environmental affairs for the Chamber of Commerce, as president of the Palo Alto YMCA Board of Directors and as president of our Rotary Club. Four years ago, Busse put his architectural talents to work when Rotary built sun shades for a new picnic area in Greer Park, as well as the Sister Cities directional pole at City Hall. Congratulations, Bill!

 

Annette Glanckopf

Community service has a champion. State Senator Jerry Hill honored Annette for her efforts in organizing the Palo Alto Neighborhoods (PAN) association, and for her commitment to disaster preparedness. The 13th Senate District Community Champion award is given to residents who have "gone the extra mile" to serve their communities and bring people together, Hill's office said.

  Walt Hays
At the Rotary District Conference in April, District Governor Angie Hassler presented Walt Hays with the Rotary Foundation Award named for Past District Governor Karl Stucki who served in 2000-2001. Walt was honored for being the driving force for our club's matching grants, and for being our "go to guy" for World Community Service and Global Grants.  He was recognized for traveling to see our projects in action around the world.  Congratulations to Walt!
