Kappy Kling of Hearthfire Books and Treats Wins Rotary’s 2021 ‘Ethics in Business’ Award
The award comes with a $500 prize to donate to the charity of her choice - Resilience1220.
In 2009 the Rotary Club of Evergreen awarded its first annual ‘Ethics in Business Award’. Each year since, Rotary Club members nominate businesses and business professionals they believe comply with Rotary International’s Four-way Test, as follows: 
Of the things we think, say or do:
  1. Is it the truth?
  2. Is it fair to all concerned?
  3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
  4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
Nominees can be both Rotary club members and non-club members. 
Kappy Kling purchased HearthFire in 2010 and has engineered a variety of changes over the years to meet our community requests. A key component to the store’s success is engagement at the local level - both personally and from the store itself. Hearthfire supports our mountain area schools in multiple ways, has hosted events for fantastic organizations such as 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 non-profits based upon their unique requests.   Personally, Kappy has also been involved in Leadership Evergreen, EHS Education Foundation, and will be welcoming an Exchange Student next year. She practices what she believes in, which is Shopping Local.  
Kappy's motivation and inspiration for striving to do the right thing is first and foremost her daughter, Katie, the youth in our mountain town and the educators that support them, and the wonderful unique individuals which make our community so special.
