Friendswood Rotary Club President Bill Provenzano recognizes the following Rotary Club Members with a “Paul Harris Fellow” named for Paul Harris, who founded Rotary with three business associates in Chicago in 1905. The Paul Harris Fellow presentation was established in his honor in 1957 to express appreciation for a contribution $1,000 to the humanitarian and educational programs of The Rotary Foundation. Those programs include an array of projects that save and invigorate the lives of people around the world and enhance international friendship and understanding. Foundation programs provide educational opportunities, food, potable water, health care, immunizations, and shelter for millions of persons. These activities are funded, implemented and managed by Rotarians and Rotary clubs around the globe.
Rotarians also designate a Paul Harris Fellow to recognize another person whose life demonstrates a shared purpose with the objectives and mission of The Rotary Foundation to build world understanding and peace. We move closer to a more peaceful world today as Whitney Hebert received her 1st Paul Harris Pin, Allan Rasmussen received his 3rd Paul Harris Pin, Greg Jeter, received his 1st Paul Harris Pin, Renee Langdon received her 1st Paul Harris Pin along with Bill Provenzano receiving his 2nd Paul Harris Pin.
