The Rochester Rotary will honor former Rochester Mayor Tom Richards with the 77th annual Rochester Rotary Award.

Richards will receive the honor forty years after his father, Thomas B. Richards, was recognized by the Rochester Rotary in 1974.

The Rochester Rotary Award honors community members who demonstrate the Rotary International’s “Service Above Self” motto, according to the organization. Recipients are recognized for being a role model and for their service to the community.

The award will be presented Thursday afternoon at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center.
