Northern and Western Ohio Rotary Club Boards, Rotary Leaders and special Guests came together at a Legacy Dinner to CELEBRATE Paul Harris Fellows, and Major and Bequest Donors this Rotary Year 2016-2017 at the Emerald Event Center in Avon, Ohio.
For more than 110 years, Rotary members have been addressing challenges around the world. Grassroots at the core, Rotary links 1.2 million members to form an organization of international scope. It started with the vision of one man — Paul Harris. The Chicago attorney formed the Rotary Club of Chicago on 23 February 1905, so professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas, form meaningful, lifelong friendships, and give back to their communities.
Paul Harris Fellow recognition is extended to any individual who contributes, outright or cumulatively (or in whose name is contributed), $1,000 or more to the Annual Fund or PolioPlus or as sponsorship of a portion of a Foundation grant. The recognition consists of a certificate and pin.
North Coast and Oberlin Interact students assisted at the Event.
