Thank you all who participated and/or helped organize this wonderful evening!

The Rotary Club of Fonthill is once again ready to celebrate the humanitarian contributions of the Pelham community through the Paul Harris Fellowship Awards
The Paul Harris Fellowship Award is one of the highest honours Rotary can bestow upon a person. Recipients are Rotarians and community professionals and volunteers, in recognition of their outstanding contributions, exemplifying the highest ideal in Rotary, which is “Service above Self.”
For each Fellowship awarded, the Rotary Club of Fonthill makes a donation of at least $1,000 in the recipient’s name, to Rotary International’s “Annual Fund SHARE program.,” The fund supports Rotary’s world-wide programs centred on saving and enhancing lives by providing educational programs, food, potable water, health care, immunizations, shelters for millions of people, good environmental practices, and peace centres. The activities are funded, implemented and managed by Rotarians and Rotary clubs around the globe, including our own Rotary Club of Fonthill.
At this time, the club seeks nominations from within its Rotary membership, but also from the wider Pelham/Niagara community. Fellowships will be awarded in June.
Individuals who have earned this honour in the past include teachers who have run after-school programs; volunteers from Pelham Cares; neighbourhood builders such as the creators of the myPelham online community; business owners who give of their time and financial resources to make life better for those in need; and those who have a passion to serve others in need and follow that passion.
The deadline to send a nomination – providing a name and a paragraph outlining why the individual is being nominated – is April 30.
