The Paul Harris Fellow recognition was started by The Rotary Foundation in 1957 to recognize $1,000 in cumulative giving.  Adjusted for inflation, $1000 in 1957 is equal to $9,103 in 2019, yet a PHF continues to be awarded for $1,000 in giving.  Are you a Rotarian who might be able to give more than the suggested annual contribution of $100? Are you a Rotarian who would be willing to join the Paul Harris Society pledging $1,000 annually to Annual Fund, PolioPlus and/or an approved global grant? We started the year with 54 Paul Harris Society members in the district, and we’ve grown to 58. Our goal was to increase by 10%.  Will you join us?  To join, complete the form on the Paul Harris Society’s webpage (look for the JOIN button to open the form).
