Another Paul Harris Fellowship for Valerie

At this week’s meeting, Moravia Rotary Club President Wayne Weibel presented Valerie Collins with her fourth award of a Paul Harris Fellowship.  In his remarks, Wayne cited Valerie for “repeatedly going above and beyond…to do good in the world.”  A Paul Harris Fellowship is awarded to a person who contributes at least $1,000 to The Rotary Foundation’s Annual Fund, Polio Plus, or approved Foundation Grant.  Valerie has served for several years as the club’s Foundation Chair, where she leads by example.  While presenting her new lapel pin, Wayne asked her to “wear this pin with pride in honor of all the lives that you will reach through your generosity.”  Val’s husband, Tom, proudly attached the new pin to her lapel and led the club in a round of applause.Val PHF+3
