As one of his last official presidential jobs, the Rotary Club of East Nassau Past President Elmer Lowe awarded Mayuri Decka with the "Rising Star" award. This award is presented to new members who go above and beyond and show exemplary Rotary characteristics shortly after joining the club.  Mayuri responded to the humanitarian need in Nepal and organized a fundraising campaign which ultimately raised over $10,000 for Nepal.  The event was so successful that a new club sponsored program was formed, GREAT (Global Rotary East Action Today) which will take charge in emergency situations such as Nepal.  The club congratulates Mayuri for her great program and look forward to her continued participation in Rotary.
