The Winchester Rotary Club is pleased to announce the establishment of an annual Honorable Paul Harris Fellow Award.  The award is to be bestowed upon a member of the Winchester community, who is currentlynot a Rotarian.  Winchester Rotary will continue to recognize and pay tribute to our own members, it is now our organization’s intention to go outside of our membership.   We would like your assistance in identifying an individual who has consistently demonstrated accomplishments that are deemed worthy of this recognition.

The Paul Harris Fellowship Award is one of the highest honors Rotary can give to an individual. In addition to the recipients recognition exemplifying the highest ideals that Rotary places in “SERVICE ABOVE SELF, “ this award also includes a donation of $1,000 or more, in the recipient’s name  to The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International which supports Rotary’s world-wide programs. 
In October 2018, at a date to be determined, the Winchester Rotary Club will announce the name of the recipient at an award ceremony luncheon, open to the community. It is our sincere hope that this event will be the beginning of an annual tradition in years to come. 
Attached is a nomination form for you to use to recommend a worthy candidate.  Please be as specific about the reasons for your recommendation and feel free to use the back side, if you need to.
The selection criteria are specifically around:
- Involvement with humanitarian service activities, and programs, 
- active participation to help others and
- demonstrated personal volunteer efforts. 
Nominations should be submitted by email on our website and received no later than September 26, 2018.
