Rotarian honored

MERRIMACK – Maureen Mooney, of Merrimack, was named the "Rotarian of the Year" for 2015-16. This award was bestowed by her colleagues in the Rotary Club of Merrimack at the annual Changing of the Gavel on June 30 at the Homestead Restaurant. The award recognizes a member of the club who has exceeded expectations of the club’s "Service above self" motto to the Merrimack community.

"It’s an honor to serve the Merrimack community in various capacities," said Mooney. "My term as club president provided ample opportunities of service to a cross section of those in need in town. It’s humbling to receive this recognition among a club of distinguished public servants."
