University Hills Rotary Club obtained the designation of “100 percent Paul Harris Fellow Club” on January 25, 2010. University Hills was a Rotary club in which all dues-paying members were Paul Harris Fellows. The Paul Harris Fellow recognition is given in appreciation to anyone who contributes, outright or cumulatively-or in whose name is contributed-a gift of $1,000 or more to the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International.
