Beelieving is seeing. At a recent meeting of the Prince George Rotary, Past Rotary International Director, Ken Morgan, conveyed a Paul Harris Fellow Recognition
on a personal friend, Prince George Board of Supervisor’s Chair, William (“Bill”) A. Robertson. Ken, a member of the Rotary Club of Chapel Hill, had driven from North Carolina to convey Paul Harris Fellow status on his childhood friend and non-Rotarian, Bill. The club’s President-Elect, Percy Ashcraft, whose day job is being the Prince George County Administrator, had conspired with club President and Director of Social Services, Shel Douglas, to convince Bill to attend the meeting. To make the presentation even sweeter Past District Governor Chuck Arnason drove in from the Blacksburg Rotary to witness the ceremony.
Later Club Secretary, Dana Rieves, was awarded her Paul Harris Fellow because a fellow member transferred recognition points to Dana to recognize her significant donations to The Rotary Foundation as a new member and her donation of time and talent to the club in general. This Paul Harris Fellow recognition was a surprise as well.
Promoting The Rotary Foundation is worthy at all meetings but consider adding some excitement and surprise around giving to The Rotary Foundation and recognizing those who do contribute time, talent, and dollars. It just may encourage other members to ‘Be a Gift to the World.”
A little ‘beelieving’ can go a long way.
