PRINCE GEORGE – On November 14, 2017, leaders of Prince George County, the Police Department, and the Rotary Club of Prince George County gathered to recognize three new Paul Harris Fellows.
The presentation of Paul Harris Fellow recognition is The Rotary Foundation’s way of expressing its appreciation for a substantial contribution to its humanitarian and educational programs. It is named after the founder, Paul Harris, a Chicago lawyer who started Rotary International with three business associates in 1905.
For the Rotary Club of Prince George County, the award is a way to recognize members of the community who exemplify the Rotary motto, “Service Above Self.” Though not members of Rotary, the individuals honored today have demonstrated, through their professionalism and dedication to service, a shared vision with the ideals of Rotary International.
Congratulations to Sergeant W. Chris Douglas and Lieutenant Paul Burroughs of the Prince George Police Department and Robert (Bob) L. Woodward (United States Army Retired) on being recognized as the world’s newest Paul Harris Fellows.
