The Rosemount Rotary Club chartered six months ago, and a lot has been accomplished in those months. One of the most prestigious yet is receiving the Presidential Citation 2009-2010 Award. This award is designed to motivate clubs to actively participate in service. Revised on an annual basis by the president of Rotary International (RI), the award traditionally highlights the president's emphases.

To qualify for a Presidential Citation, the Rosemount Rotary Club had to achieve membership goals and complete three of six activities. According to current RI President, John Kenny, the activities address each of the four Avenues of Service, as well as emphasize areas in health and hunger, literacy and water.

A mandatory goal for the club to meet was to achieve growth through a net increase of at least one member. Rosemount Rotary also succeeded in the categories of eradication of polio, advancing the recognition and public image of Rotary, and expanding membership globally in both numbers and quality. The club contributed nearly $1,900 toward the Polio Plus foundation, through member donations and participating in the fundraiser for the Polar Plunge in February. To attract new members and cooperation from other organizations, a Humanity in Motion advertisement was made on behalf of Rosemount Rotary in the Rosemount Town Pages annual community guide. A membership drive was held on February 5 and well over 20% of members brought a potential candidate as a guest to our meeting. The meeting featured Carla Carlson, from UMore Park and was very successful.

Within our District, Rosemount Rotary was the first to submit paperwork for the award.
The club was officially presented the award by Newell Krogmann on June 25, 2010.
