Klaus D. Hachfeld of Sturbridge was honored recently by Rotary International for his commitment to Rotary. Hachfeld has been a member of the Sturbridge Rotary Club since 1982 and has served in many capacities including President of the Club in 1987-88, Governor of District 7910 in 2008-09 and served on many committees and projects both on the Club and District level. In 2010 he was awarded The Rotary Foundation’s Citation for Meritorious Service. During the District 7910’s recent Conference held in Plymouth MA, Hachfeld received Rotary’s highest honor, the Rotary International “Service Above Self” Award. This award is internationally competitive and granted to a maximum of 150 Rotarians per year throughout the world who exemplify continuing humanitarian service to others through Rotary. Of the 51 clubs in District 7910, only five Rotarians have achieved this recognition during the Award’s 25-year history. Sturbridge Rotary proudly congratulates Klaus on this well-deserved honor.
Standing between Klaus and Glenys Hachfeld is District Governor Jim Fusco.
