On Tuesday October 24, 2023, the Arlington Rotary hosted a banquet dinner, named in honor of Rotary’s Founder, Paul Harris, to recognize our Community Persons of the Year. With so many incredible choices, especially during the pandemic, we have chosen to honor Kristine Shah and George Parsons.
Several other worthy members of the Arlington community were chosen by individual Rotary members to be honored with a Paul Harris Award:

● Paul Buckley, Past President of Arlington Rotary
● Christine Bongiorno, Director of Health and Human Services
● Dr. Robin Schoenthaler, Oncology Doctor and COVID reporter
● Chief Kevin Kelley, Arlington Fire Department
● Captain Dan Kerr, EMS Coordinator at Arlington Fire Department
The banquet was held at St Eulalia Hall, 50 Ridge Street Winchester, MA, with a cocktail hour from 5:30-6:30 followed by dinner and then our program and awards.
