Rotary Club of Stevens Point honors Cahills
For the Gazette
STEVENS POINT – The Rotary Club of Stevens Point recently honored Tom and Patti Cahill as the 2022 Rotary Club of Stevens Point Paul Harris honorees for their ownership and management of the Oxford House Riverside in Stevens Point.
The Cahill’s have been instrumental in the start-up of the Oxford House Riverside.
The house is a self-run, self-supported recovery facility for those recovering from alcoholism and drug addiction.
This facility only accepts men. There are 10 beds in the self-supporting, drug-free home, which is part of a larger non-profit network.
“We are honored to receive the Paul Harris Fellow,” said Patti Cahill, “but the real credit goes to the guys who live and work there.”
Continuing the legacy of Rotary’s founder, the Paul Harris Fellow program recognizes individuals who contribute, or who have contributions made in their name of $1,000 to The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International.
Founded in 1907, The Rotary Club of Stevens Point meets every Wednesday at noon.
Meetings are held at the Rose House downtown Stevens Point.
Members of the Rotary Club of Stevens Point get involved in the community through activities like cleaning a portion of the Green Circle Trail and a section of Highway B, and bell ringing for the Salvation Army. In addition, the club contributes to local non-profit organizations that work the youth, homeless, animals, and enhancement of public spaces in our community, including the Cultural Commons.
A donation of $1000 in the name of the Cahills will be made to the Rotary International Foundation by the Rotary Club of Stevens Point.
