The Capital Region Rotary Integrity Awards were held May 5 at the Nisku Inn.

Integrity is defined as a firm adherence to a code of especially moral or artistic values, incorruptibility according to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary.

Some 1.2 million members of 32,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries around the world seek to serve the community and promote high ethical standards embodied in the ideals of Rotary International.

Twelve Rotary Clubs in the Capital Region sponsor the Integrity Awards to honour the non-Rotarian citizens for their integrity and service to the community.

Recipients are those Albertans judged by the respective clubs as persons who: Have a lifestyle consistent with the Four-Way Test; Have a life showing purpose and expressing principles widely accepted in the community; Take a stand without concern for personal loss or reputation, regardless of circumstances; Pursue their integrity without need for recognition within the community, and have made a personal contribution to the region that warrants special recognition.

The Rotary Club of Nisku-Leduc recipients were Lorne and Tina Mix.

Lorne and Tina Mix have been living Rotary’s motto, “Service Above Self”, for many years and have left a legacy of contributing to and supporting their community in countless ways. Lorne and Tina were married in February 1969 and decided to start Lorne Mix Trucking shortly after.

They also generously donated $100,000 to the Black Gold Health Foundation for the new CT Scanner and $300,000 to the Leduc Recreation Centre.
