John Kramb, presented Major Donor Awards to John and Carol Petrie and Tom and Kathy Burson at a presentation during the club meeting of November 20th. The Major Donor Award recognized those who have made significant cash donations cumulatively to The Rotary Foundation typically over a period of time through multiple Paul Harris Fellow donations. John and Tom have been member of the Rotary Club of Mechanicsburg for 20 and 34 years respectively and have passionately supported The Rotary Foundation from the beginning. 
 
The Paul Harris Fellow recognition acknowledges individuals who contribute, or who have contributions made in their name, of US$1,000 to The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International. It was established in 1957 to show appreciation for and encourage substantial contributions to what was then the Foundation’s only program, Rotary Foundation Fellowships for Advanced Study which later became the Ambassadorial Scholarship and is currently the Global Grant Scholarship Program. The Flondation has expanded to support many activities including Polio Plus, Global and District Grants and more. You can see more at this link.
