Congratulations to Ed Fitzgerald on his Paul Harris Recognition.  Shown here is Co-President John Douglass presenting the PHF to Ed.
We ask each Rotarian to make a voluntary Sustaining Member contribution of $100 to the Rotary Foundation.  The Paul Harris Fellow recognition acknowledges individuals who contribute, or who have contributions made in their name, of $1,000 to The Rotary Foundation.
Rotary established the recognition in 1957 to encourage and show appreciation for substantial contributions to what was then the Foundation’s only program, Rotary Foundation Fellowships for Advanced Study, the precursor to Ambassadorial Scholarships. 
Many notable figures have been named Paul Harris Fellows, including Mother Theresa, former President Jimmy Carter, Russian President Boris Yeltsin, U.S. astronaut James Lovell, UN Secretary-General Javier Perez de Cuellar, and polio vaccine developer Jonas Salk.
