Erika  Baldino is awarded the Paul Harris Fellow!
The Club asked John Susani to present a Paul Harris Award to Erika Baldino for  her commitment to the club.  Last year, her company donated $2,000 to the Paterson  Rotary Club Foundation, she has been instrumental to our club as a Board of Director,  Fundraiser Co- Chair, VIP Bulletin CoChair ,  ByLaw Committee member, and Website Director on the Public Relationship Committee.  She is also helping our district with their newsletter.  

The Paul Harris Fellow recognition acknowledges individuals who contribute, or who have contributions made in their name, of $1,000 to The Rotary Foundation.

Rotary established the recognition 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. 

Many other notable figures have been named Paul Harris Fellows, including U.S. President Jimmy Carter, Russian President Boris Yeltsin, U.S. astronaut James Lovell, UN Secretary-General Javier Perez de Cuellar, and polio vaccine developer Jonas Salk.

The number of Paul Harris Fellows reached the 1 million mark in 2006.

Let's congratulate Erika for this honor !
