During Rotary year 2019/20 over 20 of our club member have earned recognition within the Paul Harris Fellowship program.  Unfortuately because of the curtailment of our "live" club meetings, we have been unable to properly recognize these individuals.

On Thursday October 22,2020, we remedied that situation by honoring those who have earned the Paul Harris awards.  

Honored that day:
Gary Gomphers and Steve LaBelle (first awards)
Emeline Rodway, Dom Rainone, Lyn Boykin (Paul Harris (PH) +1)
Jim Klynman, Brent Smeltzer, Jo Ann Murphy, Greg Panjian (PH +2)
Marcia Barber, Harry Lumpkin (PH +3)
Dave Gardner (PH +4)
Dave Rapp (PH +5)
Jim Dow, Liz Dow, George Green (PH +6)

The Club is grateful for those who gave to advance the Rotary Mission.
