Lawrence M. Means, who recently helped create a Rotaract club at Central Penn College, was awarded the Robert D. Hanson Rotary Excellence Award during the club’s Rotary Club of Harrisburg’s meeting on January 11, 2016.
Means worked with the Rotary Club of Mechanicsburg North in establishing the college’s Roteract, a Rotary Club initiative for 18-to-30-year-olds.
Means, who recently retired as president and CEO of Rhodes Development Group, is an active volunteer with numerous groups in addition to Rotary. He is on the boards of the Property Management Charitable Foundation, Bethesda Mission, Ecumenical Services, Downtown Harrisburg Improvement District and currently is chair of Theatre Harrisburg.
In addition to recognizing individuals who contribute selflessly to the community, the annual presentation of the Robert D. Hanson Rotary Excellence Award celebrates the life, legacy, and service of the late Robert Hanson – a long-time club member and model Rotarian.
