            The Richard Hubbard Club Service Award was established in 2003 by then club president Sam Trudel.  Our Rotary Club has always done a good job of recognizing outstanding citizens through our Stephen Freeman Award and Community Service Award, but Sam felt that an award that honored a Rotarian for their dedication and service was overdue.
            The award is determined solely by the club president and is awarded at changeover to the Middlebury Rotarian who, in the president’s opinion, has made a remarkable contribution to the ideals of Rotary.
            The award marks Dick Hubbard’s 40 years of perfect attendance and honored Dick for his life-long service to the Middlebury community.  Dick was a modest man by nature and in the true spirit of “Service Above Self,” he often worked quietly behind the scenes to make a difference.  He was most proud of having saved Porter Hospital from closure years ago by single-handedly orchestrating an effort in the community to raise $50,000 to pay an outstanding debt.  His work on behalf of the community extended to Middlebury College, Henry Sheldon Museum of Vermont History, and many other civic activities throughout his life.
            We make this award in memory of and in inspiration of Dick’s remarkable Rotary service.
