Rotary Club of The Woodlands’ annual fundraising gala, An Evening of Elegance, will be held February 29, 2020 at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott. The event will honor George Lindahl, III with the Legendary Service Award for his work both in the community and through mission work internationally. Mary and Norman Parrish will serve as co-chairs of the event.
 
Rotary Board member, Tom Cox, Jr. nominated Mr. Lindahl for the honor. “George Lindahl personifies a servant leader. He selflessly lends himself to worthwhile causes and seeks nothing in return. He simply identifies need, brings the community together and impacts real change. He has quietly done so much for so many. George is certainly worthy of this recognition and I am excited to see him honored by our community,” said Cox.
 
Lindahl’s career in oil and gas spans 45 years, capping his career as CEO/President of Union Pacific Resources (a Fortune 500 Company) and as Vice-Chairman of Anadarko Petroleum from 2000-2003. He currently works full time as a volunteer for numerous nonprofit charities. His goal through service and financial investments is to make “transformational change.” He and his wife, Kristi, live in The Woodlands.
