Cranberry Township Noon Rotarian Bill Hewko, left, is presented with the 2016-17 Platinum Club of the Year Award by Judith Hughes, district governor of Rotary 7280. Mr. Hewko served as the Cranberry Rotary Noon Club president for 2016-17 and accepted the award during the Rotary One Summit held in Franklin, Pa. on Nov. 4. Rotary District 7280 is made up of 40 clubs – and approximately 1,000 members - in Western Pennsylvania. Rotary club membership represents a cross-section of the community's business and professional men and women. The world's Rotary clubs meet weekly and are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds.

The main objective of Rotary is service — in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world. Rotarians develop community service projects that address many of today's most critical issues, such as children at risk, poverty and hunger, the environment, illiteracy, and violence. They also support programs for youth, educational opportunities and international exchanges for students, teachers, and other professionals, and vocational and career development. The Rotary motto is Service Above Self.
