The Paul Harris Fellow recognition program acknowledges individuals who contribute, or who have contributions made in their name, of $1,000 to The Rotary Foundation, the charitable arm of Rotary International.
At a wonderful dinner at LCCC Sage & Seed, Joe Matuscak, President of North Coast Rotary surprised Gina Eschke and Larry Calabrese who have done so much for our club and foundation, with Paul Harris recognition pins.
Gina first joined Rotary in 2004 and served as club president in 2010-2011. Gina manages the scholarship process, serves on the Board, and actively participates in most projects and events. In the past, Gina held District leadership roles and had responsibility for guiding the Rotary youth program Interact.
Larry Calabrese first joined Rotary in 2013 and has served as Treasurer and on the Board since 2016. Larry has filled many roles with no titles to describe what he does for the club; zoom coordinator; business expo and safety fair representative; and on-line and sponsorship fundraiser chair.
This is the second Paul Harris recognition award for both Larry and Gina and they each received a Paul Harris pin with a sapphire stone.
