Shuswap Rotary presented 5 members of the club with Paul Harris Fellowship Awards at the induction meeting on June 23, 2020. 
 
             
     Janice Ross                       Fred Goodman 
 
Two of the awards were based on their personal contributions to the Rotary Foundation. Janice Ross received a 'Paul Harris Fellow +1' which means it was her second PHF recognition. Fred Goodman received a 'Paul Harris Fellow +7' which means it was his 8th recognition.
 
The other three PHFs were identified by a committee based on their significant contributions to the club and Rotary. The club presented PHFs are for Rob McKibbon, Mark Ellis, and John Hansen.  
 
Rob McKibbon has just stepped down as RYE director after 6 years and after hosting a multitude of exchange students. Exchange students were very lucky to have Rob and Lynn as their host parents because they each got treated like a combination of family and royalty. He and his wife Lynn have been tireless supporters of Rotary and the youth exchange program since he joined Rotary in 2011. Rob served as president of the club in 2014-15 and he maintains our club Facebook page. He has also been a huge supporter of our fundraising auction acting as its MC the past few years. Rob has a valuable special ability to get generous auction supporters and donors to help make our auctions a huge success.
 
Mark Ellis has been highly involved in our Barani project in Kenya. He is passionate about helping the children who benefit from our Barani project. He travelled with 5 other club members in 2017 to visit Barani school and our sponsored students.  He has also chaired the Barani committee.  As fundraising chair he has overseen several very successful auctions which have enabled our club to be very generous in offering services locally and internationally.  Mark has also served as president of the club. 
 
 
John Hansen has served as our club president this year after helping out in a big way with this position in the previous two years.  John has done an incredible job in transitioning and guiding us through this new world that we are now experiencing.John has served on the Barani committee and works tirelessly behind the scenes in many capacities as well as to help make our auctions a success, and gives our auctions some class by appearing in a tuxedo every year!
 
 
Congratulations and many thanks to all 5 Paul Harris Fellowship recipients for their contributions to Rotary.
