The Orange Rotary Club recently hosted its Annual Paul Harris Awards and Board Installation Dinner at Race Brook Country Club.
Michael Richetelli of Orange, a 10 year member of the Orange Rotary Club, became President succeeding outgoing President Diane Eger.
Eger said, “This is a special evening for all Rotarians, as it marks the start of another year. The presidency is a very rewarding opportunity and the club will be well served by Michael Richetelli.”
In addition to installing the new Board of Directors, the Orange Rotarians installed Kathleen Gorelick as a new member and also honored four Paul Harris Fellow recipients: Jack Barton, Rotary Club of Orange; Diane Eger, Rotary Club of Orange; Jim Messina, St. Martin DePorres Academy; and Tom Pisano, Orange Soccer Association. The Paul Harris Society is named after the founder of Rotary International. A Paul Harris Fellow is awarded upon a gift of $1,000 made to The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International and in recognition of one’s service to the community.
Michael Richetelli said, “The Rotary Club of Orange has a remarkable history of service to the community. I look forward to continuing this tradition and to the exciting year ahead.”
