Congratulations to Rotary District 5150 Rotarian of the Month – August 2020, Barbara Rycerski from the Rotary Club of Sausalito.

Barbara truly captures the Rotarian spirit in all ways.  She is a true Rotarian, through in and throughout. She endlessly volunteers for each and every event we do, and follows through to the end. She truly epitomizes “Service above Self”. She is more than deserving of Rotarian of the Month.
