Chariho Rotary receives Community Service award

Forty years of dedication honored

Wood River Health Services Board Chair and CEO attended the Rotary Club of Chariho’s weekly meeting Tuesday to present the club with its annual Community Service Star Award in appreciation for over 40 years of service to the health center and the general community.

Michael Lichtenstein, President & CEO of Wood River Health, outlined the numerous contributions the club has made in recent years to help the health center in its mission to provide quality health care in Southern Rhode Island, including donations to the Community Fund and grants for purchases of wheelchairs, root canal equipment, a defibrillator and a laboratory microscope.  

“As I understand, getting the health center up and running was part of the impetus for creating the club, and the club has been a valuable supporter ever since,” Lichtenstein said as he presented the award.

Because the club has no permanent physical location in which to display trophies, the award was presented in the form of a contribution to the international Rotary Foundation’s polio eradication fund.
