While the actual banquet and celebration may be postponed to the Fall, we will still be awarding grants to local non-profits this summer. The review committee will soon be accepting applications and reviewing them over the months of May-June. 

Brief Background

The Paul Harris Fellowship is named for Paul Harris, who founded Rotary over 100 years ago. The Fellowship was established in his honor in 1957 to express appreciation and recognition for a contribution of US $1000 to the Rotary Foundation, whether by an individual or on behalf of an individual. Every Paul Harris Fellow receives a pin, medallion and a certificate when he or she becomes a Fellow. This identifies the Paul Harris Fellow as an advocate of the Foundation's goals of world peace and international understanding.   While it is an honor to receive a Paul Harris Fellow, it's not about the recognition; it's about what we can do in the World as Rotarians and as members of the Community.
