The Paul Harris Fellowship is named for Paul Harris who founded Rotary with three business associates in Chicago in 1905.

The Fellowship was established in his honour in 1957 to express appreciation for a contribution US$1,000 to the humanitarian and educational programs of The Rotary Foundation. Those programs include an array of projects that save and invigorate the lives of people around the world and enhance international friendship and understanding.
Foundation programs provide educational opportunities, food, potable water, health care, immunizations, and shelter for millions of persons. These activities are funded, implemented and managed by Rotarians and Rotary clubs around the globe.

Rotarians also designate a Paul Harris Fellow to recognize another person whose life demonstrates a shared purpose with the objectives and mission of the Rotary Foundation to build world understanding and peace.

As we move closer to a more peaceful world today, the following individuals become Paul Harris Fellows:

Tom Bailey
Paul Monaghan
 
Roseanne Morissette                                                                                                  
Bonnie Prentice
