This past week we payed tribute to the members of our club who chose to take Martin a challenge set forth by Past President George H.L. Porter in November 2021 - with support by then club President Ron Felgenhauer - in an effort to make this a 100% Paul Harris Fellow Club.  Past President George initially matched cash contributions to polio with points towards a Paul Harris Fellow and then extended it through the end of Past President Christi's year - 2021-2022 - and included the awarding of points for contributions to the annual fund as well as polio.
