Paul Harris Fellowship Awards
In 1905 Paul Harris formed a Club in association with 3 other businessmen, he named the new club "Rotary" because members met in rotation in their places of business. Club membership grew rapidly and soon he became convinced that the Rotary Club could be developed into an important service movement and from those first ideals Rotary now extends to every part of the Globe.
In 1957 the Paul Harris Fellowship was established in honour of the Founder of Rotary to express appreciation and recognition of a contribution of US$1,000 or in whose name the amount is contributed.
Every Paul Harris Fellow receives a pin, medallion and a certificate when they become a Fellow
