Gary Sochrin has been chosen as the Derby-Shelton Rotary Club’s Norm K. Parsells Award winner for 2018. The award will be presented at a luncheon hosted by the Rotary Club of Trumbull at Tashua Knolls Golf Course & Banquet Facility in Trumbull on December 5. Reservations may be made by clicking here. Gary will be honored along with recipients from the other clubs in the area. Dave Grant was our recipient in 2017. Gary has been a very active member of the derby-Shelton Club since 2001.
Parsells was a dedicated Rotarian who served his community well. Norm’s extensive service to the community demonstrated Rotary’s ideal of “Service Above Self”. Although Fairfield was Norm’s “home” club, he frequently visited and worked with other clubs where many lasting friendships had been made. It is, then, quite fitting that these clubs join to honor him by issuing an annual Norman Parsells Award. The Rotarian recipients of the Award have been recognized by their clubs as ones who personify the spirit and dedication to community and Rotary, that Norm represented during his lifetime.
