Doug Adam received his Paul Harris +6 pin (his first ruby!) at the weekly meeting on Tuesday December 17th.  
Paul Harris Fellow recognition has been decorating our Rotary Foundation’s passionate supporters for many years. It is a proud tradition that honors the memory of our founder Past RI President Paul Harris.  In order to be honored as a Paul Harris Fellow, someone must contribute sums of at least $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 to the amazing work that has distinguished our Rotary Foundation as an organization that provides hope, health, and peace around 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 given professional 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.
