South haven Rotary Honors Local Family

The Rotary Club of South Haven has given its 2021 Community Service Award to the Marcoux family. The South Haven Rotary says the Marcoux family — Jim and Paula, Jay and Julia, Chad, and Will — received the honor this week at the Rotary club annual induction and awards event. The award, now in its 13th year, annually recognizes residents who make a difference in the community while embodying the spirit of the Rotary slogan, “Service Above Self.” The Rotary says Jim has served as the South Haven Community Foundation’s director for a dollar a year since it was incorporated in 2005. The foundation has awarded more than $450,000 to local non-profits. Paula makes meals whenever asked to assist people in need. The Rotary says she’s also active in the Blessings in a Backpack program through the South Haven schools. South Haven Rotary President Dan Thompson says the Marcouxs are a “truly a family committed to our community and the people who live here.”
