The Rotary Club of Framingham’s annual installation of officers and directors, held at the Framingham Country Club on June 21, was highlighted by the presentation of its Citizen of the Year Award to Edgar Kalinda , a senior at Framingham State University, who offered his kidney to his high school mentor, ailing club co-president Tom Sturiale. (Tom eventually received a kidney from another donor).

The club’s Organization of the Year Award went to the MetroWest YMCA, represented by YMCA CEO Rick Macpherson, receiving the award from club co-president Dick Manelis. The Rotarian of the Year Award went to Bob Schecter, receiving the honor from club co-president Tom Sturiale. Newly installed District 7910 Governor Steve Sager attended the dinner, along with past District Governors Tom Polito and Carl Kaliszewski.
