National Awards for Community Service (NACS)
The National Awards for Community Service (NACS) was started in 1970 by then Club Director Rafael “Paing” G. Hechanova who sold the idea to President Ford Tussing.
The awards were meant to recognize the good work that individuals or association do to serve the community over and above what they normally do.
The award criteria were circulated to all clubs in the Philippines and Rotary Clubs were encouraged to nominate the awardees. The 3 original awards was essentially on a national basis and was later expanded to 6 winners – a winner and runner-up from each of the regions of Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.
The first awardees chosen were Rosa Rosal for her work with the Red Cross, Dr. Florentino Solon, for his work in nutrition in the depressed areas of Cebu City and the Laoag Parish Center for its work in community development. Dr. Solon was eventually recognized by then First Lady Imelda Marcos and was designated as National Nutrition Commissioner.
The Medical Mission was a success. The patients were happy to get a free consultation and left the compound with free medications courtesy of RC Makati and our donor, Pascual Laboratories thru the courtesy of Ms. Mia Pascual.
Present among the Rotarians were: Pres. Reggie Nolido, PE Eddie Yap, IPP Carlo Rufino, IPDG Robert Kuan, Miko Valerio, Hiro Oba, Dicky de Leon, Eddie Galvez, Aiai Galvez and Rtn. Junjun Dayrit.
The project is sponsored by a District Grant from RI District 3830.
