Written by Peter Carey
The Rotary Club of Brewster recognized 7 new Paul Harris Fellows amongst it’s members this afternoon with a luncheon at Aversano’s Restaurant in Brewster. The Paul Harris Fellow recognition acknowledges individuals who contribute, or who have contributions made in their name, of $1,000 or more, to The Rotary Foundation. Rotary established the Fellowship 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. Rotary International in 2006 has recognized over 1 million Paul Harris Fellows.
Those recognized as 1st level Paul Harris Fellows today are, Shayne Stark, Ed Placke, Joe Ruggierio, Jennifer Perry, Sara Nesheiwat, Lisa Cinque, and Mindi Stark.
 In addition to those first time Fellows, the club also recognized 6 current Paul Harris Fellows who were elevated to the next level of Fellowship. Those acknowledged are, Current Brewster Club President Paul Fucito, Dr. Mike Nesheiwat, Ray Durkin, Bob Cinque, Mike Durante and Greg Amato. On hand to help those recognized celebrate were friends and family along with the youngest Paul Harris Fellow recipient in the Brewers Club’s 74 year history, Riley Perry, who is also the grandson of Rotary Club of Brewster President Paul Fucito.
 A few of the Paul Harris Society gifts have helped provide:
  • Vocational training for teachers establishing an early childhood education center in South Africa
  • Water filters, toilets, and hygiene training to prevent fluorosis, diarrhea, and other diseases in India
  • A scholarship for a medical professional in Italy to research treatments that minimize mortality rates among premature babies
  • Peace-building seminars for 200 teachers and 1,300 students in Uganda
  • Treated mosquito nets and medical services that prevent malaria in Mali
