This Week at Rotary - Paul Harris Awards

Andy Bakkum and Dean Dickenson will award Paul Harris awards. 

According to Rotary International, "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."

Last Week at Rotary
We really enjoyed
Wow! Sarah Arendt-Beyer said she could hear the buzz of the meeting as she walked up. I would say there was a buzz in the air - both from the excited chatter and from the Blue Angels that Andy coordinated to cycle overhead.
We finally got to meet some of the newer members who have joined since COVID.  
A reminder to keep reaching out to the people with red badges and give them a regular, warm Rotary welcome.
In-person meetings starting July 1
We are looking forward to seeing everyone.
As a reminder, we will be meeting in-person starting on July 1 at the Cargill Room at the Waterfront. Please start marking your calendar now so that we can see you.
We will still be sending out a Zoom link each week even if you are on the in-person list for any Rotarian to jump on as needed.
