As Noted by Els van Engelenburg
A Paul Harris Fellow recognition is The Rotary Foundation’s way of expressing its appreciation for a substantial contribution to its humanitarian and educational programs. It is named for our founder, Paul Harris, a Chicago lawyer who started Rotary International with three business associates in 1905.
Rotarians often designate a Paul Harris Fellow as a tribute to a person whose life demonstrates a shared purpose with the objectives of The Rotary Foundation. Tonight I have the honor and pleasure of recognizing a friend and a Fellow Rotarian to become a Paul Harris Fellow.
In the last couple of weeks, Patrice has worked many hours on the Computers of North Brevard Charities, upgrading their security, somewhere in between she has sewn 20 dresses for her Sorority to send to Africa.
She spent many hours working on our club books and with the Accountant to make sure that we had correct information on our accounts.
She is active in her Church, and spends time sewing quilts for the ROTC kids going into the military, Hospice of St Francis, Honor Flights and the Cancer Center.
She manages her family’s real estate and is managing the Estate of her Family.
A contribution to The Rotary Foundation is an investment in the ideal of goodwill, peace and understanding, that is an ideal held high by Rotarians over the world, and one that Patrice clearly shares. Working with such individuals of good will, we believe the ideal will become reality.
Together we see a world where People unite and take action to Create lasting Change across the globe in our communities and in ourselves
