The Walterboro Rotary club is proud to announce that Bill Steadman has
become a Paul Harris Fellow. Bill Steadman’s contribution to The Rotary
Foundation of Rotary International is allaying suffering, improving living
conditions and providing educational opportunities for young people
somewhere in the world.
The Paul Harris Fellowship was named for Paul Harris, who founded Rotary
with three business associates in Chicago in 1905. The Fellowship was
established in his honor in 1957 to express appreciation for a
contribution to the humanitarian and educational programs of The Rotary
Foundation. Those programs include an array of projects that save and
invigorate the lives of people around the world and enhance international
friendship and understanding. Foundation programs provide educational
opportunities, food, potable water, health care, immunizations, and
shelter for millions of persons. These actives are funded, implemented and
managed by Rotarians and Rotary clubs around the world.
We move closer to a more peaceful world today as Bill Steadman becomes a
Paul Harris Fellow.
