Photo Contest 2007-08 winner
R otarians have spoken! The winner of the 2007-08 Rotary photo contest is Richard S. Lawrence. The Rotarian magazine staff had the tough job of whittling hundreds of entries down to six finalists, but Rotarians made the final decision on whose photo best illustrates Service Above Self.
"I’m just so happy I could do it," Lawrence said. "If it weren’t for the support of Rotarians in so many ways I wouldn't have been able to take the picture. It's so humbling an honor to me to accept it on their behalf."
Lawrence's photo will appear in the September issue of The Rotarian.
The Rotarian: Richard S. Lawrence, Rotary Club of Manchester, Conn., USA

The Service Above Self Moment: A Guatemalan boy inspects a cup of water made possible by Rotarians in District 7890. Eleven clubs in the district raised more than $24,000 to provide water filters, vented pit latrines, and raised vented stoves for each of 52 families in Guatemala.
