A Jolly Good Harris Fellow

Marc Lawrence of the Sequim Sunrise Rotary receives an award from Nell Clausen, president of the club. Lawrence became a Paul Harris Fellow by donating $1,000 or more to the Annual Programs Fund.

Paul Harris formed the world’s first service club, the Rotary Club of Chicago, on Feb. 23, 1905. His intention was to recapture in a professional club the same friendly spirit he had felt in the small towns of his youth. Today, Paul Harris Society contributions to the Rotary Foundation support a wide range of humanitarian grants and educational programs that enable Rotarians to bring hope and promote international understanding throughout the world.

The Sequim Sunrise Rotary has more than 60 Paul Harris Fellows.
