White Cloud– The White Cloud Rotary Club was proud to have Scott Swinehart awarded the distinction of a Paul Harris Fellow by Past-President Stewart Sanders recently. The Paul Harris Society is a special District recognition program designed for Rotarians who wish to support The Rotary Foundation in a more substantial way each year.
Paul Harris Society gifts enable Rotary’s worldwide network of dedicated humanitarians to implement projects that address pressing needs in communities around the world as well as at home. Because of these contributions:
• Teachers and schoolchildren have access to clean drinking water
• Children are vaccinated against polio and other diseases
• Adults and children alike can learn to read and write
• Women are given microloans and vocational training that enable them to support themselves and their families in a healthy and dignified way
The Paul Harris Society is named after Paul P. Harris, founder of Rotary International. Paul Harris formed the world’s first service club, the Rotary Club of Chicago, on February 23, 1905.
White Cloud Rotary is proud to have had the majority of its members recognized as Paul Harris Fellows. For more information on Rotary, please visit www.Rotary.org or contact any White Cloud Rotary Club member.
