Paul Harris once said, “Perhaps dreaming is not so bad if one dreams good dreams and makes them come true.” In Rotary, we make dreams a reality through extraordinary projects and activities here at home and around the world. These projects would not be possible without the generous support of Rotarians and friends of our Foundation. The Rotary Foundation recognizes those individuals who contribute US$1,000 or more annually to the Annual Fund, PolioPlus, or approved Foundation grants by inducting them into the Paul Harris Society.

Jimmy Leon was recognized for his generous contributions to support the Rotary Foundation as a Paul Harris Fellow +one.

Today we honor a dedicated friend of our Rotary Foundation whose annual generosity distinguishes Akin Olufowoshe as a member of the Paul Harris Society.  Akin is honored for his ongoing generosity in support of the Rotary Foundation and was honored with a Paul Harris +six pin.
