Paul Harris Fellowship Awards

P.P. Russell Dale and Katrina Allison

P.P. Russell Dale was awarded his PHF for the contribution he has made to both the Rotary Club of Rotorua and to the service ethic of Rotary. It was also good that in presenting the PHF award, Past President Allen noted the wider contribution that Russell has made to forestry in New Zealand. 

Katrina Allison has made a very large personal commitment to serving the community and has through her own personal endeavours has raised a lot of money to support causes such as Big Brother Big Sister. Like Russell, Katrina has undertaken this work without any expectation of an award. That is the true spirit of Rotary and Service.
