Little River, SC February 27, 2015:
Dwight Toavs and Rotary President Elect, Kathy Toavs both received the Paul Harris Award last week at the Rotary Club meeting in Little River.
In 1905 Paul Harris organized the first Rotary Club in Chicago. In 1907, the club initiated its first public service project, the construction of public toilets in Chicago. This step transformed Rotary into the world’s first Service Club.
By the time of Harris’ death at the age of seventy-nine, Rotary International had grown to more than 200,000 members in 75 countries. Rotary International currently numbers 1.2 million members worldwide. The motto of Rotary International is “Service Above Self”.
Please consider joining The aul, “The small club with a Big Heart.” Every Wed. at noon at the CB Berry building in Little River.
Supporting the Rotary Foundation is important to The Rotary Club of Mount Pleasant. We want to be a part of Rotary’s mission to “advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education and the alleviation of poverty.” The Foundation not only supports these goals globally, but locally as well with the awarding of grants for worthy projects here in our area. Our club has a strong tradition of giving to the Foundation. In the past couple of months, we have had the pleasure of awarding 16 Paul Harris Fellow awards which have been previously reported in the District newsletters. Our latest recipient, Mary Lindsay, was awarded her second Paul Harris award by Past District Governor and District Foundation Chair Lou Mello. Congratulations to Mary!
