Appreciating two remarkable Rotarians
In order to recognize our 2015-16 President for her many years of Service Above Self with our Rotary Club of Kitimat, members honored Lynda by establishing the Lynda Rocha Hammerstrom Scholarship.   A member of our club for more than 25 years, Lynda has served in most executive roles, president on six occasions, and chaired many committees, particularly memorable the Wine Tasting galas in January.  
Later in the evening it was Lynda’s turn to present, in this case, her choice for Rotarian of the Year - 2016.  Our club’s tradition is the awarding by the president of this recognition to the member who best exemplified our motto Service Above Self in their Rotary year.  Linda is certainly a deserving recipient of this recognition. 
She has also served as a director for our Rotary District 5040.  It was a touching moment when Robin Lapointe presented Lynda with a framed description of the scholarship.
This is a $1000.00 scholarship offered to a graduate of Mount Elizabeth High School.  A recipient will have demonstrated in their day to day lives Rotary’s motto, Service Above Self.
