Newport Rotary Club honors Micheline Auger as they hit the streets

in Newport/News

NEWPORT — The Rotary Club of Newport recently scoured the streets of Newport to serve in honor of longtime Rotary friend and Newport legend Micheline Auger.

Micheline truly lived the Rotary Club’s motto of “service above self,” as she tirelessly cared for the streets of Newport.

She was even a recipient of the “Mel Carter Community Service Award,” for her generous acts.

From picking weeds in the summer to shoveling snow in the winter, she was always there.

Micheline frequented the weekly Rotary Club meetings and was very active with the club.

After her passing in 2019, the Rotary Club could think of no better way to honor her than to hit the streets and clean up as she did.

Tuesday was the second annual Micheline Auger Cleanup Day.

While the club took a few moments to share and reflect on Micheline, they then broke out into several groups to pick up garbage along the streets and waterfront of Newport.

The Rotary Club of Newport is currently meeting weekly on zoom and says they would welcome anyone interested in “service above self” to join them online or in-person for one of their community service projects.

Anyone interested in learning more about Rotary or joining the club may contact current Rotary President, Mary Hoadley at mhoadley@nchsi.org.
