The Tappahannock Rotary Club was more than pleasantly surprised at a recent Rotary District Banquet to be awarded two very special recognition awards for their community work during the 2012-2013 year. The awards banquet held at Mary Washington College in Fredericksburg in June was attended by John Lewis (left), Club President 2012-2013, and his wife Hollie. John Lewis still recovering from the surprise said "I am still shocked we won best "Large Club" out of 55 clubs for Community Service and the Presidential Award (only two clubs got that). I was really proud to represent us." The District covers a region including Northern Virginia, west to Charlottesville, and south to West Point.
