Print Friendly, PDF & Email

  Four local Malden-area people were honored at the Rotary District #7930 “A Celebration of Heroes” evening at Danversport Yacht Club on November 11. The Malden Rotary Club was pleased to select its Heroes: Paul Hammersley, President of Malden Overcoming Addiction (MOA), and David Hart, longtime Malden Rotary Member/Past President, Past Assistant District Governor, and President of “Concerned Advocates of New England.”

  Hammersley is employed with the City of Malden as an Addiction Recovery Resource Specialist – where he has been the driving force behind Malden’s newest addiction assistance initiative, “Malden Cares.” More than 10 MOA Board Members and friends, including Mayor Gary Christenson and Special Assistant to the Mayor Maria Luise, were in attendance to cheer on the Malden Heroes and 41 other Heroes from Rotary District #7930.

  Malden’s Pisa Pizza and Breakaway Owner Joe Crowley and his wife Cheryl were named Heroes by the Topsfield, Boxford & Middleton Rotary Club for their tireless and charitable efforts in always getting involved in local charitable initiatives.

  All Rotary Clubs in a District that has 49+ Clubs were invited to nominate a Hero from their community and to present them with a Paul Harris Fellow recognition at this event. Candidates were doctors, nurses, teachers, crossing guards, emergency services personnel, veterans or anyone else whom each Rotary Club believed to be one of their community Heroes.

  Rotary District Governor Terry Curran and Rotary District Foundation Chair/Past District Governor Joan Arsenault were on stage presenting the Paul Harris Fellow Certificates and Pins to the Heroes.
