During a recent meeting of the Chattanooga Hamilton Place Rotary Club, three members were honored as Paul Harris Fellows. The honor is given to members whose annual generosity distinguishes them as a member of the Paul Harris Society.

Pictured from L-R: David Elliott, attorney with Grant, Konvalinka & Harrison and a past president of the club (2011-212); Gina Crumbliss, CEO and president of the Chattanooga Food Bank, and the most recent past president of the club (2015-16); and Rick Carlson, who’s retired from Sears and serves on the club’s membership committee.

The Paul Harris Society recognizes Rotary members and friends of The Rotary Foundation who contribute $1,000 or more each Rotary year to the Annual Fund, PolioPlus Fund, or approved Foundation grants. Paul Harris, the founder of Rotary, once said, “Perhaps dreaming is not so bad if one dreams good dreams and makes them come true.” Rotarians make dreams a reality through extraordinary projects and activities here at home and around the world, said club President Stan Russell. These projects would not be possible without the generous support of Rotarians and friends of the Foundation.

The club meets every Wednesday at noon at GraceWorks Church on Lee Highway. Contact any Rotarian for more information.
