Dr. Tom Parker Awarded Paul Harris Fellow

 

Our club’s most recent Paul Harris Fellow is Dr. Tom Parker. His PHF certificate, medallion and lapel pin was awarded by Club President and PDG Nathan White on October 7, 2009. Donors of $1,000 or more to the Rotary Annual Programs Fund, PolioPlus, or the Humanitarian Grants Program, or people who have that amount contributed in their name, can be recognized as Paul Harris Fellows. Contributions to The Rotary Foundation support our goal of advancing international understanding, goodwill, and peace.  A contribution of $ 1,000 can help provide:

  • · A well for clean water to a community in India
  • · Equipment for a children’s library in Ecuador
  • · Polio vaccine for numerous children
  • · Playground equipment, musical instruments,
  • · Therapeutic toys for rehabilitation of children in the Czech Republic
  • · Eyeglasses for needy adults in the Philippines
  • · Funding for a portion of a Group Study Exchange
  • · And many more opportunities for people throughout the world

 

These programs can only be sustained with the ongoing support of dedicated Rotarians. Thanks to Dr. Tom Parker and his wife Karen for making The Rotary Foundation a charity of choice.
