Stawell Rotary recently recognised one of their local business with the inaugural Val Nicholson "Are you Being Served" Award. This award was created in memory of much appreciated Club member Val Nicholson, who passed away earlier this year. Val came to Stawell to research her family history and became a stalwart Rotary volunteer and Club member. The recipients of this Award, Grant Meadows and Laetitia Eckman, work at the Stawell IGA Supermarket and were recognised for their outstanding customer service. This award leaves a lasting memorial to the work and life of Rotarian Val Nicholson.
