Following the recommen- dation of DG R V N Kannan (2018–19), Rtn R Srinivasan was presented with the RI’s Avenues of Service Award for his contributions to RID 3000 over the last four decades.
An attractive plaque along with a special Rotary pin was given to Srinivasan by Kannan on behalf of RI President Barry Rassin (2018–19) at a special event in Madurai in the presence of DG Dr A Zameer Pasha, DGE A L Chokkalingam and other Rotary leaders of the district.
Srinivasan joined RC Madurai West in 1977–78 and then became a charter member of RC Madurai Midtown in 1980–81. During his long tenure, he had served in various capacities including club president, district secretary, district conference secretary, and GSE leader to Osaka, Japan, among others. As a senior executive of the TVS group of companies, Srinivasan is currently advisor to TVS Srichakra, a tyre manufacturing firm in Madurai.
The award plaque says, “through compassionate enthusiasm and commitment to service, he represents the best that Rotary has to offer to community.” In his message, Rassin (2018–19) says the award was presented to Srinivasan for his “outstanding efforts in each of the Avenues of Service.”
