On March 17, President Chuck Kraining (pictured on left) proudly presented a Rotary International Paul Harris Fellow (PHF) award to Tex Lewis.  Our Club members selected two recipients following our 2015-16 Fantasy Football fundraiser, which raised $2,000 for The Rotary Foundation and enabled PHF awards for two community members.
 
A longtime Silverdale resident, Tex’s name is synonymous with the Clear Creek Trail and the Clear Creek Task Force, and has been instrumental in the planning, fund raising, and recruiting volunteers for the now extensive network of trails.  Tex also coordinated the beautiful mural painting and clear coat of the Anderson Hill Overpass in 2009, a project in which Silverdale Rotary was proud to heavily participate.  Tex’s tireless volunteer efforts in the community totally embody the Rotary motto, “Service Above Self.”
