Each year, the Rotary Club of Battle Creek honors someone in Battle Creek who has made a positive impact on our community and who exemplifies Rotary's motto of “Service above Self.” These individuals are the community's unsung heroes, working quietly in their own unique way to make Battle Creek an even better place to work and/or live for all residents. Individuals need not be a member of the Rotary Club of Battle Creek but should be someone who serves our community through volunteerism, goes above and beyond in their professional vocation, or makes a significant contribution in some other way to improving our community. 

To ensure the broadest consideration among the many people who selflessly serve in our community, nominations for the Red Rose Award are sought from the public Please consider nominating someone for this annual award. Click here for a Red Rose nomination form.
