Greeting e-Clubbers! Congratulations and thank you to Elizabeth Kine who has just achieved her first Paul Harris Fellow Award. Her partner Edgardo Carrillo is in the San Ramon Rotary. The tentative plan is for Elizabeth to receive her certificate and pin at a meeting of the San Ramon Club.
The Rotary Foundation is the mechanism whereby Rotary clubs in the US partner other Rotary clubs both locally and all over the world to engage in joint projects. Rotarians are encouraged to give some amount to the Foundation every year, even if it is only a symbolic gift of $20 per year. The program is called EREY – Every Rotarian, Every Year.
$100 is encouraged, and quite a few clubs ask their members for $200 per year. When the annual gifts add up to $1,000, the member receives a certificate and a pin signifying the achievement.
So once again, thank you Elizabeth Kline for your generous support of the Rotary Foundation, and congratulations on receiving your first PHF!
