Kling given Rotary’s Ethics in Business Award

Posted

Kappy Kling, the owner of HearthFire Books & Treats, has been given the Rotary Club of Evergreen's 2021 Ethics in Business Award.

Kling purchased HearthFire in Bergen Park in 2010 and made changes over the years to meet community requests, according to the Rotary club. A key component of the store's success is engaging with the community, and HearthFire supports area schools, and hosts events for Mountain Youth Musicals and Resilience1220.

HearthFire supports local authors, artists and book clubs, was a founding member of the Rocky Mountain Literary Festival and generally supports local nonprofits. Kling also has been involved in Leadership Evergreen and the Evergreen High School Education Foundation, and will host an exchange student next year. 

The club has been giving this award since 2009, looking for businesses that comply with Rotary International's Four-way Test: “Of the things we think, say or do: Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned?”

The award comes with a $500 prize that recipients donate to the charity of their choice. Kling selected Resilience1220.
