The Rotary Club of Dalton recently awarded Mrs. Joann Williams, a major supporter of the North Georgia Regional Library, the Jean Harris Volunteer of the Year award. The award, named for the wife of the founder of Rotary Internationa, recognizes outstanding volunteerism which advances the Rotary standard of "Service above Self." Mrs. Williams helped to fund beautification projects at the library and her leadership led to a funding increase of more than 10 percent for fiscal year 2009.
