Muriel Tolley receives her Paul Harris Fellowship recognition from Wayne Guy at our last luncheon.

 

Muriel Tolley has been honoured with a Paul Harris Fellowship, proudly adding to the growing list of recipients this fall, as the Club celebrates it members in our 50th Anniversary.

“When it comes down to Club service, Muriel has volunteered herself regularly and has made a point of interacting with members at every turn,” said Club President Wayne Guy in introducing Tolley.

“Also, when it comes to vocational service, Muriel’s experience and knowledge in education continues to be a great asset.

“She is always eager to get things done.”

Tolley was the Club’s youth services director for many years, and has been instrumental in retaining connections with the school boards. 

She has also assisted with international projects by providing support at board meetings.

This was Tolley’s Paul Harris Fellowship “plus one,” noted Guy.

First-time recipients receive a certificate, while subsequent recipients receive a pin imbedded with coloured stones signifying the number of times the person was honoured.

A Paul Harris Fellowship recognition is the way the Rotary Foundation expresses appreciation for financial contributions made by members. 

Individual clubs can also decided to make a donation on behalf of a person in the community in order to honour them for their work.
