Did you know that when Rotary’s founder, Paul Harris, died in 1947, the Rotary Foundation established a memorial fund in his name:  “The Paul Harris Foundation Fellowships for advanced study”.  Right from the beginning, the Rotary Foundation has had an emphasis on education.  We are so pleased that our district currently has two Rotary Foundation scholars:   a Global Grant Scholar studying multiple sclerosis at Memorial University in Newfoundland and now, a Rotary Peace Fellow about to embark on a journey to Thailand.  District 7820 is continuing the Foundation’s tradition of supporting education to improve global health and well-being.
       Trivia question. What was the amount of the first donation from the Rotary Foundation and what did it           support?
