The Rotary Club of LaSalle Centennial calls for nominations for the Roger Mann International Service Award  This award, to be presented at the Rotary Club of LaSalle Centennial’s Crystal Drop Gala on February 19, 2022, is intended to recognize a citizen of the Windsor-Essex region who demonstrates energetic and enthusiastic volunteer service internationally.  Roger (RajbirMann, a charter member of the Rotary Club of LaSalle Centennial, has been involved with over twenty-three water and sanitation projects in India, Africa, and Mexico. Witnessing the tragic and unnecessary illness and death of children due to contaminated water affected him profoundly. Roger has visited India and Mexico many times at his own expense to co-ordinate and follow-up with all of these projects.   It is said that water is life, and Roger has witnessed the amazing benefits that clean water brings to a community. When children are no longer ill from water borne diseases, they are able to attend school and further their education. For girls, it often means they no longer have to walk for hours to fetch water for their family, which in turn enables them to attend school, enhancing their economic possibilities.   In 2016, Roger moved to the Cambridge area to be closer to his family. To honour his many years of service, the Rotary Club of LaSalle Centennial created this award.  Deadline for nominations is January 8, 202

  • Nominations are open to any citizen of Windsor and Essex County, over 18 years of age, who has       served internationally in a volunteer capacity
  •  Preference will be given to those who have worked on water, health, or education projects.
  • Submission should include a synopsis (maximum 300 words) of the scope and breadth of the applicant’s international service.
