Rotarian Lori Turner Awarded Paul Harris Fellow

Board Secretary Lori Turner of the Rotary Club of the Lexington Lunch Club was honored last night on March 24, 2018 at the Natural Bridge Hotel and Conference Center with a Paul Harris Fellow during the Reverse Raffle festivities. District Governor-Elect Tim Carter (2019-20) presented the award along with Club President Lori Sadler. Rotarians from other area clubs along with district clubs were represented at the evening's event and helped applaud Lori's exemplary service to the club and her community.

Lori served as the event chair of the 2018 Reverse Raffle and spent countless hours promoting and marketing the event. She worked with a committee of Rotarians to ensure that the event was prosperous. Tickets were able to be purchased online this year. The silent auction was expanded with bidding along with the line-up of corporate sponsors.

Mrs. Turner serves as the executive director of the area's Community Foundation for Rockbridge, Bath and Allegheny and is very proud to be a Rotarian. Rotarians have a tradition of supporting their Foundation by honoring others. Many notable figures have been named Paul Harris Fellows, including President Jimmy Carter, Russian President Boris Yeltsin, U.S. Astronaut James Lovell, UN Secretary-General Javier Perez de Cuellar, and Jonas Salk. Congratulations Lori and thanks so much for making the 2018 Reverse Raffle a huge success!
