The Paul Harris Fellow recognition acknowledges those individuals who contribute to, or who have contributions made, in their name of $1,000 to The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International. Every additional $1,000 contribution after that adds a “+ number.” Each recipient receives a pin that is specific to their level of donation. Once a donor has reached the “+” level of having had over $1000 donated, each pin they receive will have single or multiple sapphires or rubies, depending on the amount they have donated to the Rotary Foundation.
At our weekly meeting today, Thursday, September 21, 2023, Rotary Foundation Chair Mike Mullins presented a Paul Harris Fellow +1 recognition to Melissa Godwin Overton. Melissa is also a member of the Paul Harris Society, who are individuals who elect to regularly contribute $1,000 or more each year. Congratulations Melissa. We thank you for your giving heart and continued generous contributions to the Rotary Foundation.
