Sanford-Springvale Rotarian Elias Thomas was recently chosen to receive the National Association of Realtors "Good Neighbor Award" which is a program that honors realtors who make an extraordinary impact though volunteer work. Elias is one of five realtors chosen from hundreds of nominations throughout the U.S. As a winner, the NAR will donate $10,000 to the charity of Elias' choice which will, of course, be Rotary International. These monies will be used to fund future global grants - building catchment dams in water-starved sections of Rajasthan, India. Elias has organized and led global grant projects in India annually since 2001. To see his full story in REALTOR magazine, click here.
