We are having a great Rotary year as we all make new connections. I am about half way through the club visits and have found every club to be active and ready to serve their community and world. Sandy and I just returned from our Zone Institute in Denver. Our new Zone 26 is paired with the other new Zone 27. We are now part of the Zone structure that include the entire western half of the United States and a little bit of Canada. We also have Hawaii in our Zone.

Paul Harris Society

The Paul Harris Society recognizes Rotary members and friends of The Rotary Foundation who elect to contribute $1,000 or more each year to the Annual Fund, PolioPlus Fund, or approved global grants.

The purpose of the Paul Harris Society is to honor and thank individuals for their generous, ongoing support of The Rotary Foundation.

Rotary districts often honor new members of the Paul Harris Society by presenting them with a certificate and chevron at a district or club event.

I participate in the Paul Harris Society because I care. These contributions demonstrate our commitment to serve others.

What your giving supports

By giving from your heart each and every year, you’ll support families and change lives. Paul Harris Society gifts have helped provide:

  • Vocational training for teachers establishing an early childhood education center in South Africa
  • Water filters, toilets, and hygiene training to prevent fluorosis, diarrhea, and other diseases in India
  • A scholarship for a medical professional in Italy to research treatments that minimize mortality rates among premature babies
  • Peace-building seminars for 200 teachers and 1,300 students in Uganda
  • Treated mosquito nets and medical services that prevent malaria in Mali
If you are already contributing $1,000.00 or more to the Rotary Foundation and not a member of the Paul Harris Society, then fill out the Paul Harris Society Brochure and mail it, fax it or email it to address indicted on the form. If you are not sure if your are an active member of the Paul Harris Society, contact the PHS District Coordinator PDG César M. Caro by email.
 
If you are not a Paul Harris Society member then please consider joining today and help make a difference in the world. Be the Inspiration!
 
 
In an effort to increase membership and highlight Rotary’s inspiring work, RI President Barry Rassin is urging clubs and districts to organize fun, informal community events called Rotary Days.
 
"Rotary Days events will offer you the chance to have an impact in your community, build long-term partnerships, increase interest in membership, and improve Rotary’s image," Rassin said.
 
Any club, big or small, can host a Rotary Day. Neighboring clubs can pool their resources and co-host an event, and entire districts can come together for a large-scale Rotary Day.

Rotary Showcase Impact Tracker

Rotary Showcase is an online application that allows Rotarians and Rotaractors to share stories of their clubs’ successful projects with people around the world. In addition, project stories are a source for features in Rotary International blogs and newsletters.

The Showcase’s Impact Tracker shows the impact of each Rotary project in terms of volunteers and volunteer hours, cash contributions, and in-kind donations. It also shows the collective impact of all reported projects.

Success stories posted on Showcase can serve as an inspiration and a model for other Rotary and Rotaractor clubs. Check out this "Impact Tracker" by clicking here.

What Paul Harris Said

Image

"Rotary has a long way to go. One who thinks of the movement as a finished product is indeed short sighted; there is nothing in the past to justify such a view; those who have been long identified with it think of it as having made a beginning only; the grandeur of Rotary must be in the days to come".
