THE Echuca Moama Rotary Club wants to hear from people in the region who have been awarded a Paul Harris Fellowship (PHF).

A Paul Harris Fellowship is the highest recognition a Rotary club can bestow on a member or someone from the public.

Many award recipients are not Rotarians and are not involved in Rotary.

To bestow a PHF a Rotary Club must first donate US$1000 to the Rotary Foundation in the name of the recipient. It’s a serious commitment to recognise a citizen’s or Rotarian’s contribution.

The Rotary Foundation is the charity of Rotary International, an organisation that distributes more than US$250 million every year to support charitable programs.

The club would like to invite recipients to its Paul Harris Dinner on April 17 when the club will celebrate its service to Rotary and the community.

“We invite all PHF recipients or anybody knowing of one to get in touch,” secretary Mike Stansbury said.

“Lots of people may have been a recipient of the award from another Rotary Club and have since moved to the Echuca-Moama area.

“We would like to see recipients recognised in the community and update our records.”

If you are a PHF recipient or know of one, contact Mike Stansbury on 0418323716 or email [email protected]
