In 2015, District 6310 started awarding a Rotary Hero of the Year  honor within each club, acknowledged at the district convention and receiving a certificate. 

Each club nominates its hero based on his or her longtime service to the club and to his or her community.  

The 2023 winner is Dan McKune:

Dan is  involved with every fundraiser we have —  Saginaw on Stage, Rotary Raffle and the Golf Outing.  He also participates in Bell Ringing for Salvation Army, the Saginaw Christmas Parade and anything else the club may be involved in.  

He is one of the first to always volunteer.  He is  also stepping up to the plate to be president again in 2024-2025, knowing our club struggles with filling this position.  

 Dan is also very active on our board and also in the community helping other non-profits including but not limited to:  serving on the United Way Board and serves on the finance committee of Holy Spirit Church.  He also financially supports a young boy in Peru and an elderly man in Guatemala so they are provided food, shelter, medicine and schooling for the young boy.  He also financially supports various non-profits by participating community fundraisers.
