FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Oshkosh Rotary Southwest Celebrates Paul Harris Fellows

Oshkosh, Wisconsin, U.S.A., October 25, 2012 - At the Club’s November 14th meeting the annual Paul Harris Fellows Awards will be handed out to those members who have contributed over $1,000.00 to the Rotary Foundation.  Seven members will receive multiple awards for even larger donations to the Foundation.  The Award is named after the founder of Rotary, Paul Harris, and a Wisconsin native who went on to practice law in Chicago and founded Rotary in 1905 with three other businessmen.  

Those who will receive the awards are: Amy Montgomery, Doug Seefeld, Jerry Krueger, Karen Stauffer, Barb Herzog, Dick Ames, Norm Packer and Bob Stauffer.  Additionally, the Club will award a special honorary Paul Harris Award to Dennis and Karlene Leatherman.  The Club Board of Directors determined that it wanted to recognize outstanding community service by non-members through this award.  The Leathermans have led the very successful Farmer’s Market for years and their volunteer efforts have helped establish the market as a major community building event.

Oshkosh Rotary Southwest is a service organization that meets every Wednesday for lunch at Robbins restaurant in Oshkosh. The club’s 110 members raise and donate almost $150,000 annually for local, national and international causes, and they have a lot of fun doing it!
