This award was in recognition of Dennis’ selfless dedication and tireless contribution to all Sunrise Rotary events over the years.
The award was named after Paul Percy Harris (April 1868 – January 1947), a Chicago attorney best known for founding the Rotary International.
In his honor, individual Rotary clubs choose a Paul Harris Fellow who meets the high professional and personal standards set by the founder.
The Fulton Sunrise Rotary meets every Friday at 7 a.m. at Mimi’s.
