The Paul Harris Fellow recognition is The Rotary Foundation’s way of expressing its appreciation to a Rotarian for a substantial contribution to its humanitarian and educational programs. It is named for Rotary’s founder, a Chicago lawyer, who started our organization with three business associates in 1905.
 
A world of peace and goodwill comes closer to reality thanks to the Paul Harris Fellows of the Aberdeen Rotary Club.  These members gave a gift of $1,000 to The Rotary Foundation.  It is because of gifts such as this that The Rotary Foundation can carry out an array of programs that achieve beneficial changes in our world: Improved living conditions, increased food production, better education, wider availability of treatment and rehabilitation for the sick and disabled, new channels for the flow of international understanding, and brighter hopes for peace.
