Due to the pandemic, 2019-20 Rotary of Grosse Pointe President Judy Masserang, center front, was not able to bestow awards to her fellow Rotarians for their dedicated service above self efforts during her term. However, thanks to so many Grosse Pointers being fully vaccinated, she was able to assemble most of her award winners at the June 9 hybrid meeting of Grosse Pointe Rotary at the Village Grille.

One of the major accomplishments under Masserang's leadership was the $250,000-plus "Re-Imagining" of the Rotary Tot Lot at Elworthy Field at Notre Dame and Waterloo in Grosse Pointe. Many of the awards reflected individual Rotarians' efforts in making the Tot Lot project a success.
