At the June 18 meeting of the Rotary Club of Joliet, six members were recognized for achieving the Paul Harris Fellow Level of Giving by the club’s foundation chairman Mike Hennessy. The Paul Harris Fellow award was established to honor members who contribute $1,000 or more annually to the Rotary Foundation program.

Jane Condon, John Gallo, Bill Jenkins, Dan Kuska, Kristin Mulvey and Rhonda Sykes were recognized with a certificate and a plaque for their financial commitment to Rotary.

Another four members were acknowledged for their contributions of $2,000 with the Paul Harris + 1 Level of Giving. They are George Buck, Marilyn Farmer, Mark Griglione and Russ Slinkard.

Pete Nichols received a Paul Harris + 2 Level of Giving of $3,000 and Craig Wright was recognized for his donation of $4,000 with a Paul Harris + 3 Level of Giving.
Both Hennessy and President Dan Mihelich thanked the members for their financial support.
“Without these donations, we would not be able to help the many people who have come to rely on our support,” Hennessy said.
“It is great to see so many of our members stepping up to meet this important obligation,” Mihelich said.
The Paul Harris Fellow + member each received a pin with sapphire. A sapphire is awarded for each additional $1,000 a member donates annually to the club.  The Rotary Foundation works to advance world understanding, goodwill,and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.
