The Paul Harris Fellow recognition is Rotary’s way of expressing appreciation for contributions to the Rotary Foundation. 

A contribution to the Foundation is an investment in goodwill, peace and understanding. It is an ideal held high by more than a million Rotarians worldwide.Our club recognizes two Rotarians for their personal support of The Rotary Foundation. It is because of gifts like theirs that The Rotary Foundation is able to 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.

Recognized for earning Paul Harris Fellow include:  

Josh Mansee received his Paul Harris Fellow +5. Fellow Rotarians shared that “Josh is one of the most dedicated and selfless people I have had the privilege of getting to know. He is a “doer” in every sense of the term.  His willingness to lead from the front inspires others and has a ripple effect that goes far beyond his own actions. I don't hesitate to help when he asks because I know anything he's involved in will be well planned, organized and make a significant impact in the community or world. He appreciates the value that Rotary can provide in many different arenas and geographic locations, including the financial contributions as well as the hard work needed to carry out those financial contributions. Josh lives 'Service Above Self.’

Laura Lee received her Paul Harris Fellow +4. Laura says “Throughout my life, I’ve been shown over and over that giving just a little goes so much further than you can imagine. I like to be involved and I thrive when I feel like I’m making a difference. Since joining Rotary in 2012, I’ve been beyond blessed with opportunities, friendships, memories, and experiences that will last a lifetime. Say yes, serve others, be kind, step outside of your comfort zone and give just a little more of you, the world needs it right now.” Laura is a true servant leader and exemplifies “Service Above Self.” 

Congratulations to Josh and Laura! Thank you for all that you both do for Rotary and for your generous support of the Rotary Foundation.
