The deadline for nominating outstanding members of our community for the Jim Swaeby Peace Award, sponsored by the Boulder Rotary Club, is coming right up. The award commemorates the contribution of Boulder Rotarian Jim Swaeby, who gave his time, talent, humor and passion to build a better world.

Jim was a Peace Corps volunteer in Tonga and a business man who contributed to the community and world in numerous ways. He carried out a life mission to “do an unexpected act of kindness or generosity for someone less privileged.”

The Award recognizes a person or persons for outstanding achievement consistent with the ideals of Rotary as expressed in the Fourth Object of Rotary: “The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.” The recipient must be an individual who lives or works in Boulder County or an organization based in Boulder County.

The winner’s name will be inscribed in a plaque to be placed in a prominent position for the community to see. For an application form, contact Cynda at cyndaca@swfound.org. The deadline for nominations is Sept. 8, 2020.
