The Paul Harris Society is a commitment by Rotarians to give $1000 per year to The Rotary Foundation. On November 17th, PDG Matthew Kane presented two Rotarians, husband and wife Andy Wright and Sherry Nelson of the Cary-Kildaire Club recognition of their individual pledges of $1000 to The Rotary Foundation.
Wright explained why each had decided to make this commitment, “There is so much need in the world. We are bombarded by requests almost daily, especially this time of year. With our donations to Rotary, we know the effectiveness of the organization allows for the maximum amount of our donations to go to work and we can see the real difference it makes to the world whether through clean water, sanitation, education or the elimination of Polio. Add to that, the benefit that we will see part of that donation come back to the District for use in District Grants, Global Grants and the Rotary Peace Center make it all the more rewarding.”
Andy Wright is currently President Elect and Sherry Nelson Club Service Chair of the Cary-Kildaire Club.
