The Paul Harris Fellowship Award is one of the highest honours Rotary can bestow upon a person. Recipients are Rotarians and community professionals, in recognition of their outstanding contributions, exemplifying the highest ideal in Rotary in placing “Service Above Self.” This honour accompanies a donation of $1,000 or more, in the recipient’s name, to Rotary International’s “Annual Program Fund,” which supports Rotary’s world-wide programs.
Barry Wylie, President of Canadian Club of Halton, was bestowed with this coveted award on January 24th at the Paul Harris Community Awards Annual Fellowship Dinner hosted by the three Rotary clubs of Oakville. Canadian Club of Halton Board Director Susan Sheppard made the announcement at the Canadian Club dinner event on January 25th. Susan said, “this is outstanding recognition of what Barry does to contribute to a number of causes, including the Canadian Club of Halton and the Oakville Chamber of Commerce.” The audience of over 200 gave a hearty round of applause to Barry.
Other recipients included (left to right) Tracey Ehl, Eve Willis, Patricia Harbman (for Chris Stoate), Leslie Ann Bent, Barry Wylie, and Bill Shields.
