Paul Harris Fellows Awarded to Two RFPD Members
Paul Harris Fellow recognition has been decorating our Rotary Foundation’s passionate supporters for many years. It is aproud tradition that honors the memory of our founder Past RI President Paul Harris. I believe that he would be deeplymoved to see all that Rotarians and friends of our Foundation have done and continue to do in the name of his belovedorganization.
In order to be honored as a Paul Harris Fellow, someone must contribute sums of at least US$1,000 to our Foundation’s Annual Fund, Polio Plus, or approved Foundation grant. These funds can be used to honor others while being applied tothe amazing work that has distinguished our Rotary Foundation as an organization that provides hope, health, and peacearound the world.
Becoming a Paul Harris Fellow is a tremendous accomplishment and honor multiplying that generosity, multiples the
community impact made with these contributions. So much good begins with these gifts: wells are constructed, children
are vaccinated against illness, senior citizens are afforded meals and services, children and adults are educated and givenprofessional opportunities. This work is vital to the children, families, and communities who benefit. Only when people’s basic needs are met, can they pursue the larger elements of human life including conflict resolution, community building,and peace. Paul Harris Fellows, in a very tangible way, provide stepping stones to a more harmonious world.
This year we congratulate RFPD Chair Ingar Brueggemann and RFPD Executive Director Melissa Willis
