Ron Rhodes and John Curtis Thompson (son of Cindy Thompson) were presented Paul Harris Fellowship awards by Ronnie Thompson for their generous contributions to the Rotary Foundation (middle photo).

Larry Hinton was recognized for earning the Paul Harris Fellowship award for a third time (bottom photo)!

Gov. Thompson encouraged club members to think about the legacy they will leave behind, and that eradicating polio worldwide is a goal we can achieve and all be proud of. It’s estimated that $5 billion a year is needed to achieve this goal. Microsoft founder, Bill Gates, has pledged $2 for every $1 Rotary can raise towards this cause up to $255 million for the next three years.
