Midday Rotarian and District Foundation Chair Howard Svigals presented Paul Harris awards to four Midday Rotarians.  The Paul Harris Award, named after Rotary‚Äôs founder, is a recognition by The Rotary Foundation for contributions to the Foundation and the fight to end polio.  A Paul Harris Award is given for a cumulative donation of $1,000, and for each $1,000 donation after the initial award.
President Rick Offner and John Burgess received their first Paul Harris Awards.  Dan Wilson received a Paul Harris plus four pin, and Nathan Schlicher, our club Rotary Foundation Chair, received his Paul Harris plus six pin.
The Rotary Foundation contributions are unique in that the club benefits from the donations through District and Global Grants.  This year Midday Rotary has received $7,000 in District Community Grants to support our local community and international service projects.  Congratulations to the awardees, and THANK YOU! to the many Paul Harris members of our club.
