The June 24 "Changing of the Guard Dinner" for the Rotary Club of Lake Forest Park included the presentation of the prestigious "Rotarian Award of the Year" 2013-2014 by president Sally Renn, to Paul Sundberg.

Paul also received a crystal globe on a crystal stand, inscribed with the Rotary Wheel.

President Sally said, "When there is a vision presented, Paul is the person who will make it happen." 

This past year Paul served on the Rotary Board as Youth Chair and was advisor to the Shorecrest High School Rotary Interact Club;  he again served on the committee for our annual fund raising event; took the lead on the sponsorship of our participation in the "Up With People" event and also with his wife, Gina, sponsored for the week three foreign students in their home. 

Two other sponsors from the Lake Forest Park Rotary Club included Douglas and Janiece Hoggatt and John and Sally Renn.

Paul demonstrated incredible leadership in the Lake Forest Park Rotary Club and community by additional participation as an adult advisor and mentor to the Lake Forest Park Youth Council. He has a full time career as a realtor with Coldwell Banker BAIN in South Edmonds.

The Award for Rotarian of the Year is a great honor. The recipient must follow the Object of Rotary to encourage and foster the ideal of service with high ethical standards in business and professions as well as in the recipient's personal and community life. For years, Rotary's commitment to Service Above Self has been through dedicated and active vision and personal involvement in leadership through the five Avenues of Service, the foundation of all club activity:

  1. Club Service, focusing on fellowship and the effective functioning of the club;
  2. Vocational Service to serve others through their vocations;
  3. Community Service to cover the projects and activities the club undertakes to improve community life;
  4. International Service to reach around the globe to improve and promote world understanding and peace;
  5. Youth Service to acknowledge youth and young adults through leadership activities.
Lake Forest Park is proud of Paul and all volunteers who dedicate their time to positively impact the community.
