A Day to Remember – 22 Paul Harris Fellowship Awards

By | May 2, 2012

On November 15th, Tustin-Santa Ana Rotary honored 22 Tustin-Santa Ana Rotarians who earned 24 Paul Harris Awards.  The Club began a program in July to encourage members to achieve their next Paul Harris level of giving.  The Club matches up to $500.00 per year of individual giving, allowing first time Paul Harris awards to be granted much sooner than normal.

Members are billed quarterly for their regular Paul Harris contribution, and most members are sustaining members at the end of their first year as Rotarians.  This year, however, members took advantage of the matching funds available and created a record-setting number of new Paul Harris Fellows, along with a number of multiple Paul Harris awards.

At the Awards Luncheon, Paul Harris (aka Fullerton Rotarian and PDG Jim Young) was on hand to present his Paul Harris Program which provides background information about Paul Harris, Rotary, and the Foundation.  And, it was a thrill for the new Paul Harris Fellows to receive their awards from “Paul Harris” himself.  Other distinguished guests at the luncheon included District Governor John Brainerd, District Foundation Permanent Fund, Rod Eide.

The Rotary Foundation is such a wonderful charity, that it is easy to promote the benefits of giving significantly to it.
