Bernie Riedel, District 7770 End Polio Now Co-Chairman, Past President of the Rotary Club of Hilton Head Island and Past District 7770 Governor has been awarded the prestigious Rotary Foundation International Award for a Polio Free World. Rotary International Awards, presented for broad service to the cause of polio eradication, are made annually and no more than ten individuals are recognized. This honor was announced at this year’s District Awards Ceremony.
Established by the Trustees of the Rotary Foundation, the award recognizes outstanding service in the field of advocacy, fundraising and contributions to Rotary’s polio eradication efforts. The Total Dollar Impact to fight Polio over the last three years in District 7770 has been just over $3 million.
Bernie’s home club, the Rotary Club of Hilton Head Island, has been the Top Polio Giving Club out of the 79 Clubs in District 7770 for the last three years! The Club was recognized once again for this achievement at the recent District Awards ceremony.
When he’s not engaged in all things Rotary, Bernie helps the community’s tech needs with his company, Riedel Computers.
