At its 60th Anniversary celebration on May 13, 2010, the Brattleboro Rotary Club honored three longtime Rotarians: Phil Dunham and Bob Gannett were recognized for being charter members of the club, which was founded on May 15, 1950; and Dick Nelson was recognized with a Paul Harris Fellow award for outstanding service to the club. A $1,000 gift from the club has been contributed in Nelson's name to the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International.
