We will honor Dr. Frank Sargent as Englewood Rotarian of the Year at our meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 15. Frank has been a member of our club since 1970, and has helped us help thousands of children and others in our community and around the world. 
Frank loves all things Rotary, but has a special place in his heart for the preschool kids at the Village for Early Childhood Education in Littleton. In December Englewood Rotary will treat 65 of those kids to holiday lunch, complete with Christmas carols, burgers, hot dogs and cupcakes, and, oh yes, Santa. Frank has championed this project for seventeen years. Each child will receive a huge bag of gifts and winter clothing. 
Englewood Walmart is an important partner in this project. Employees help select clothes in specific sizes for each of the kids, wrap and through grants help us pay for the overall program. 
Frank is also a champion of the program we call RYLA -- Rotary Youth Leadership Awards -- in which we send middle school and high school students to fantastic summer camps that teach leadership, team-building and service. Rotary's motto is "Service Above Self." And that's pure Frank!
