Paul Harris Fellow recognition is given in appreciation to anyone who contributes $1,000 or more to the Annual Fund, Polio Plus Fund or World Fund.  Multiple Paul Harris Fellows are recognized for each subsequent $1,000 cumulative contribution.

When you receive your Waco Rotary dues invoices in April and October each year, you have the option of contributing $50 each time to the Paul Harris Annual Fund.  That is $100 a year and in 10 years, you too can be a Paul Harris Fellow.  (You may also contribute any amount at any time.  Just ask Katherine for details.)

President K. Paul Holt with our newest Paul Harris Fellows:
