President's Message
Dear friends,
I’m so proud that five Club members were recently recognized by Rotary as Paul Harris Fellows and awarded lapel pins. A Paul Harris Fellow is an individual who has contributed $1,000 to the Rotary Foundation’s Annual Fund or Polio Plus, or to an approved Foundation grant.
These same members have been recognized for this level of giving in successive years. We will wait for an opportunity to celebrate them and present their pins in person once we are able to do so safely.
See you Tuesday to learn how we can relax our minds with chair yoga,

Congratulations to our most recent additions to the Paul Harris Fellow honor roll.  Expect to see more additions in the near future based on contributions made during the District 5240 Annual Fund Challenge.
  • Kati Buehler PHF+2
  • Lora Fisher PHF+3
  • Kurt Koenig PHF+4
  • Bernadette Bagley PHF+4
