Paul Harris Fellowship Award

The Club's award for outstanding Rotary or Community service


A Paul Harris Fellowship, given in the name of the founder of International Rotary Clubs, is the highest form of recognition awarded by Rotary. It is only made to those who have given exceptional service and which makes that individual stand out from their peers

The key element is Service above Self.  The award can be made to both Rotarians and members of the local community who, in the opinion of Council, exemplify the ideals of Rotary.  There are strict criteria for this award and it is not given lightly.
