Rotary announces ‘Good Neighbor’ Award

Northfield Rotary Club - Tue, 04/02/2019 - 9:02am

March 30, 2019

Press Release Regarding: Rotary Good Neighbor Award

Northfield Rotary this week named Mar Valdecantos Rotary’s Good Neighbor for 2019. The award goes each year to a non-Rotarian resident of Northfield School District whose community work reflects Rotary’s commitment to “service above self.”

Mar is a tireless advocate for under-represented members of the community. She serves as chair of Northfield Human Rights Commission, a member of the Governor’s Task Force On Housing, a member of Northfield Affordable Housing Task Force and a radio host for “El Super Barrio,” a local radio program produced for the Latino community. Mar is a member of Neighbors United, a local organization dedicated to increasing the visibility and empowerment of Northfield’s immigrant community. She has worked to build bridges between recent arrivals and the larger Northfield community. She has worked on the Municipal ID program among other collaborative work.

Mar, a trained sociologist, accepted the award on behalf of Neighbors United. She said it takes a team effort to make things happen. “It’s never a one person deal,” she said.

Alyssa Herzog-Melby, a member of Rotary’s Good Neighbor selection committee, said Mar Valdecantos is an outstanding example of a Northfielder who invests in her community. “Her work embodies good neighbor and then some,” she said.

To learn more about Rotary, join us on Thursdays from 12:15 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. at Northfield United Methodist Church or visit our web site at: northfieldrotary.org.
