Among the highest tribute, Rotarians can pay a non-Rotarian resident of a community is with a Paul Harris Fellowship. At its meeting on October 25th, Dryden Rotary honoured Willene Moffat and  Jim Shearer.
The award honours those who exemplify the Rotarian motto “Service Above Self”. 
Shearer is the Director of the Mission in Dryden and was recognized for his commitment to assisting the homeless and the less fortunate.
He says a lot of hard work has gone into the success of this program since its inception in 2011.
Shearer notes the entire community has rallied behind his cause and he's received plenty of assistance from High School students.
Moffat has been a leader of Dryden through the Arts Council as well as a long-standing member of the Dryden Artists Association.
She says she's amazed and thankful that people have recognized the work she has done as a visual artist.
Moffat says she volunteers because she loves it, stressing she's passionate about art, all of the artwork in the community and all of the artists she works with at the Gallery.
