California Rotarian of the Year: Greenville’s own John Banks

     Indian Valley’s Rotary Club sports its very first California Rotarian of the Year—John Banks.

     At the Rotary’s District Conference held at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe on Saturday, April 30, Banks received the award for his work after the Dixie Fire which included securing funds to help out fire survivors and gift cards for the area’s displaced fire survivors.

     “What a great honor it was to be recognized,” said Banks.

  The local club also received the Golden Membership Award for almost doubling its membership over the past year.

     The Indian Valley Rotarians meet every other Wednesday. The next meeting takes place on May 18 where the membership will hear from Trina Cunningham on issues post Dixie Fire for Maidu.
