Hal Folz has had perfect attendance for Rotary meetings for the past 56 years

BOCA RATON, Fla. - You may think of perfect attendance awards for school children. But a Boca Raton man has just received his perfect attendance award for the 56th year for attending weekly Rotary meetings.

Hal Folz has been to 2,912 weekly meetings and counting! The 91-year-old first joined the organization back in 1957.

Folz says it's the people and the service projects they do that keeps him coming back.

The Rotary Club of Boca Raton raises money for scholarships to give to students going to college.

Folz says if he's traveling and can't make the meeting with his club, he attends a Rotary meeting in whatever city he is in at the time.
