Today was a BIG day for the Rotary Club of El Campo!  District Governor Carmen Buneo presented Paul Harris Fellow Awards to local Rotarians.  Forty-three of the awards were to first time recipients.  Sixteen were to previous recipients.  This makes our club a 100% Paul Harris Club.  The Paul Harris Fellow recognition acknowledges individuals who contribute, or who have contributions made in their name, to The Rotary Foundation.

At Thursday’s meeting, Ann Strarup gave a program on Helping Hands Ministry. She is the founder and executive director of this organization.

Derby Doll Director Jenna Zabodyn and the Senior Derby Dolls paid a visit to Rotary today. This is the first time we have had a Derby Doll program.

The Senior Derby Dolls introduced themselves and told us their plans after high school.
