Brookings Rotary Club President Michael Gonda, right, presented two Paul Harris-Plus pins to fellow club members at the Nov. 15 meeting. Ruth Dickinson received her PH-Plus 2 pin and Brad Blaha received his PH-Plus 6 pin.

A Paul Harris Fellow is one who has donated at least $1,000 to The Rotary Foundation, or for whom someone else has donated $1,000 in his or her name. Those who have achieved “Paul Harris Plus” status reflect the $1,000 donation repeated in subsequent years.

Donations to TRF go to help with projects in one of seven areas of global and community service: Promoting peace; fighting disease; providing clean water, sanitation and hygiene; saving mothers and children; supporting education; growing local economies; and protecting the environment.
