Bloomfield Rotary Club Member/Foundation Chair Norm Famely and Duncaster President and CEO Michael A. O’Brien will receive the Bloomfield Rotary Club’s highest honor on Thursday, May 1.  The Paul Harris Award acknowledges the outstanding contributions and exceptional service of members of both the community and/or the club. Both will receive the award at a ceremony at The Mill on the River at 6:00 p.m.


The award was created in memory of Paul Harris who established the Rotary Club over 106 years ago. O’Brien has actively supported the Bloomfield Rotary for four years, donating the space for the club’s weekly meetings, which take place every Thursday at Duncaster.  Duncaster is also a major sponsor of the Club’s Annual Wine Tasting and serves as event venue as well.
