The Rotary Club of Tryon recently recognized two members as Multiple Paul Harris Fellows for their continued contributions to the Rotary Foundation Annual Fund. The Rotary Foundation’s mission is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty. The Annual Fund is the primary source of funding for Rotary’s humanitarian and educational programs.
Rotarians, and Paul Harris Fellows, Judy Lair and John Gargiulo were recognized as Multiple Paul Harris Fellows for their continued contribution to the Annual Fund. When Rotarians make contributions beyond the $1,000 required to be a Paul Harris Fellow, they are recognized as a Multiple Paul Harris Fellows. Judy Lair was awarded her Paul Harris Fellow +3 pin for her continued contributions. John Gargiulo was awarded his Paul Harris Fellow +1 pin for his continued contributions. Rotarian Doug Fowler presented the awards at the Rotary Club of Tryon’s weekly meeting.
Arch Klumph, founder of The Rotary Foundation, once said, “No one can tell us what Rotary will be tomorrow, but one thing is certain: What Rotary will be tomorrow depends upon what we Rotarians do today.”
The Rotary Club of Tryon is very proud to have Judy Lair and John Gargiulo as members of our club. These individuals exemplify Rotary’s moto of Service Above Self.
