Program Chairperson George Lovett asked Rotarians Ron Thuma and Jim Bayliff to speak about past Tipp City Rotarians who were Paul Harris Fellows at the March 12, 2014 meeting.  Named after Rotary’s founder, Paul Harris, Paul Harris Fellows donate $1,000 to the Rotary International Foundation to be used for humanitarian & educational programs including:  improved living conditions, increased food production, better education, wider availability of treatment and rehabilitation for the sick and disabled, new channels for the flow of international understanding, and brighter hopes for peace.  Ron & Jim provided some history and stories about the club’s former Rotarians, which was the first time many of the current Rotarians had heard about the club’s past members.  Of the current 70 Tipp City Rotarians, 40 are Paul Harris Fellows, and several are multiple Paul Harris Fellows.  There are also over 90 other Paul Harris Fellows awarded over time to past members, spouses, and other worthy individuals.  Pictured are Jim Bayliff, Ron Thuma, and George Lovett.
