Sue Falcone Awarded Distinguished Rotarian & Rotarian of the Year Awards
July 15, 2014 - Cornelius, NC - The Rotary Club of North Mecklenburg is proud to award Sue Falcone as the 2013-2014 Distinguished Rotarian as well as Rotarian of the Year. Falcone is the Director of Corporate Retirement Plans for Davidson Capital and has served in many leadership roles in Rotary. In her second year as Service Chairperson, Falcone was instrumental in taking on the Rotary club's largest project ever.....a $25,000 renovation of the Ada Jenkins Free Clinic of Our Towns in Davidson, NC. Falcone applied for and received a Rotary District Simplified grant of $12,500 to match the club's own fundraising of $12,500 for the project. The club raised funds from the Annual Rotary Golf Tournament.
The renovation of the free clinic included the addition of private medical offices, sinks and a new HVAC system. Falcone organized the entire project securing all of the labor, materials and equipment. When adding all the components of the volunteer activities of Rotary professionals, and reduced costs for the equipment and labor by business and community leaders, the true value of the project was between $55,000 - $60,000.
The Ada Jenkins Free Clinic of Our Towns is a community-wide volunteer organization dedicated to optimizing the health of those in need in Cornelius, Davidson, Huntersville and Mooresville.
The Distinguished Rotarian Award was given by the 2013 - 2014 Rotary Club President, DavidKeith. The Rotarian of the Year Award was voted on by all club members.
