The Rockford Downtown Rotary held its 35th annual Service Above Self awards at Veterans Memorial Hall.
The organization has been handing out the honors since 1968, with over 260 winners. Award winners are nominated by a club member and chosen by a committee. Those honored are known for their volunteer work throughout the community and affecting positive change in the lives of others.
Seven awards were presented on Thursday, three went to Rotarians and four went to non-Rotarians.
