Paul Harris Fellow Awards were presented by Lance E. Werner, Michigan City Rotary Club President, on May 25, 2017 at the Lubeznik Center for the Arts to Club Treasurer Sandy Smith and President-elect Marty Corley.
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.
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.
In becoming a Paul Harris Fellow, Sandy and Marty join a remarkable company of persons throughout the world, all recognized for their devotion to the ideal of good will, peace and understanding. The Michigan City Rotary Club was founded over 100 years ago. Rotarians are business and professional leaders who take an active role in our community while greatly enriching our personal and professional lives.
The Rotary club contains a diverse group of professional leaders from the community.
