Rotarians have a tradition of supporting the Foundation by honoring others. This year the Parry Sound Club will be recognizing the exceptional community service of Joanne and Tom Higgins at a Gala Dinner to be held at the Charles W. Stockey Centre for the Performing Arts on Saturday November 17th, 2018.

The Paul Harris Fellowship is named for Paul Harris, who founded Rotary in 1905. The Fellowship was established in his honor, in 1957, to recognize recipients as advocates of the Rotary Foundation’s goals.

Joanne and Tom Higgins have worked to improve the quality of life in Parry Sound through their untiring efforts and selflessness and the Rotary Club of Parry Sound is inviting you to help us honor them.

Tickets to this event can be purchased through: https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/parry-sound-rotary-trust/events/linda-west/.

In October 1976, Rotarian Ken Dobson and I attended the Canadian Rotary Institute in Peterborough , Ontario . One of the sessions dealt with fund raising. An idea that caught our attention was one where a Rotary Club sent a $10.00 cheque to one hundred Rotary clubs around the world asking them to send back an item of interest from their country. All items received were then auctioned off at a gala promoting world understanding. Not only did they receive interesting items at a far greater value than $10.00, most Rotary Clubs returned the $10.00 cheque. Ken and I discussed the idea and felt it had an interesting fundraising dimension but more importantly, it had potential to create a greater global awareness and an appreciation for others.

 

At the time, I was teaching Grade 8 at McDougall School, Parry Sound. Ken and I decided that I would approach my principal, Mr. Bud Stevenson, to see about involving my Grade 8 class in contacting one hundred schools around the world inviting them to send us a package of information and items from their country. In lieu of sending them $10.00, the McDougall students would prepare a package of items and information representing the Parry Sound area and send it to them.
