Rotary Club of Nelson County
George Dilendorf, Dr. Roger Collins and Thom Mansfield  were recognized during the recent meeting of the Rotary Club of Nelson County. The following presentations was made by Diane Woodson, Assistant Governor Area 4, District 7570.
The presentation of 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.
Becoming a Paul Harris Fellow is a tremendous accomplishment and honor multiplying that generosity, multiples the community impact made with these contributions. So much good begins with these gifts: wells are constructed, children are vaccinated against illness, senior citizens are             afforded meals and services, children and adults are educated and given professional opportunities. This work is vital to the children, families, and communities who benefit. Only when people’s basic needs are met, can they pursue the larger elements of human life including conflict resolution,        community building, and peace. Paul Harris Fellows, in a very tangible way, provide stepping stones to a more harmonious world.
 We move closer to a world of peace and good will today as George, Roger and Thom  becomes Paul Harris Fellows. Their gifts to The Rotary Foundation's educational and humanitarian programs is a commitment to peace and to a better life for people across the world whom they may never meet.  These are truly selfless actions.
George, Roger and Thom were presented with emblems of appreciation given to Paul Harris Fellows - -a certificate and pin.  We congratulate them for doing good in the world and  thank them for their commitment to the programs of The Rotary Foundation
