An Ashburton Rotarian has been honoured with a Paul Harris Fellowship Double Sapphire Pin for his efforts on behalf of the Ashburton Plains Rotary Club and the community.
At a recent meeting of the Rotary Club of Ashburton Plains, the club presented Ray King with a Paul Harris Fellowship, Double Sapphire Pin. Ray was first awarded a Paul Harris Fellowship back in 1994.
Paul Harris Fellowships are usually awarded to Rotarians to underline a long-term commitment to Rotary ideals. The award is named after the founder of Rotary, Paul Harris, and is one of the highest awards that can be given in Rotary. The double sapphire pin recognises the third Paul Harris Fellowship awarded to Mr King.
In the last 51 years Plains Rotary has used the Paul Harris Fellow Award to recognise those who have contributed to our Rotary Club or to The Rotary District to which we belong. The Club has also presented Paul Harris Fellowships to non-Rotarians who have made an outstanding contribution to our community. Click here for full story.
