   President Warren Johnson presents Jim Huson with his Three Sapphire Paul Harris Fellow pin, recognizing Jim's contributions to the Rotary International Foundation, which pursues charitable projects around the world. Rotary recognizes a donor of $1,000 or more to the Annual Fund, PolioPlus, or an approved Foundation grant as a Paul Harris Fellow. Paul Harris Fellows receive a lapel pin featuring the bust of Rotary founder, Paul Harris. Multiple $1,000 donations are recognized with sapphire stones on the lapel pin. Huson's father was also a Rotarian, and Jim remembers that one of his dad's greatest moments of pride was when he received his own Paul Harris Fellow. Additional Gary Rotary members who are Multiple Donors are Gene Ayers, Mike Doyne, Paul Orner, Mark Stern, Eric Tonk, and Jack Tonk.
The Angola Rotary Club is putting together a Rotary Friendship cookbook and we would like all district clubs to be included. Our club was blessed to do a Friendship Exchange this summer with Brazil and one of our hosts were presented with a cookbook from their country. It was such a wonderful gift, and we would like Rotarians from America to have the opportunity to share something similar when they do the Friendship exchange.
We ask that each Club submits a recipe to Jami Stout at no later than December 31, 2023. The sooner the better so that work on the cookbook can begin. With the recipe it is requested you put the name of your club, number, and year it was established. You can also include a picture of your club or of the food.
