Rose receiving her Paul Harris Fellow (PHF) recognition at Dunedin South Club
Congratulations to Rose Grindley, who became the Dunedin South Club's latest Paul Harris Fellow.
Rose, joined Cromwell Rotary Club on April 12, as a long time member of the Dunedin South Club she was honoured there recently by President Wendy who praised Rose’s accomplishment and achievements, including being club president in the 2016-17 year.
We are thrilled to have Rose as a member of Cromwell club and welcome her into our community with open arms.
Paul Harris Fellow (PHF) recognition
It is that time of the year when we look to our Rotary members and the wider community to acknowledge those who have demonstrated Rotary values when contributing to our community.
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. Rotarians often designate a Paul Harris Fellow as a tribute to a person whose life demonstrates a shared purpose with those objectives of The Rotary Foundation.
Below are the guidelines we use to determine this.
Recipients can be Rotarians and Non-Rotarians from the wider community.
For Rotarians a PHF is to recognise something over and above being an office holder or contributing to one project. Previously this has included a relatively lengthy and distinguished period of service to Rotary.
For Non-Rotarians potential recipients should have made a significant contribution to the community, that contribution might be partly work related but should contain a significant element of going above and beyond
A previous PHF award should not count against candidates – several Cromwell Rotarians have been awarded additional PHF awards. These are designated by precious stones i.e Sapphire or Ruby PHFs.
We would appreciate your thoughts on who you see as deserving of this honour. Please contact me if you have any suggestions.
