Lute Olson receiving Paul Harris Fellow Award from
President Jim Lamb in 2015.

Lute Olson, Honorary Member of The Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke.

For many years, Hall of Fame coach Lute Olson made dreams come true for area children and youth.  Working with The Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke, Lute Olson helped the club raise money for scholarships and programs for children and youth through the Fore For Kids Charity Golf Tournament. Lute served as a celebrity golfer for a foursome, auctioned himself off at the silent auction, and did all he could to help our club make a difference for local kids. 

In 2015, President Jim Lamb and The Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke awarded Lute Olson a Paul Harris Fellow for his dedication to area kids.  Later, the club also awarded Lute an Honorary Membership.  However, ill-health and other circumstances kept Lute from receiving his honorary membership.  At the September 3rd, meeting, President Elect Liese Razzeto, awarded Lute his honorary membership posthumously.

The Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke will be forever grateful for Lute for all he did to help us make a difference. Because of Lute, our club was able to do so much more for scholarships and programs for local kids. Thank you, Lute Olson.
