Wade Macomber Award

The Rotary Club of Burlingame

Wade Macomber Award

When Dr. Henry “Wade” Macomber (1894-1983) died after more than a half-century of Burlingame Rotary membership, then-President Ogden White established a memorial service award in his honor.  Each year the award has renewed and fulfilled his promise: “… that the kind of steady, loyal, selfless service epitomized by Wade Macomber will not go unheralded.”
