Paul Harris Fellow Honorees
Three members of the Rotary Club of Smoketown, Brunswick, Maryland will be honored as Paul Harris Fellows in ceremonies at the club’s monthly meeting on Friday, January 6, 2023 at Noon in the Community Room of the Brunswick Branch of the Frederick County Public Library (915 North Maple Avenue, Brunswick, MD).
Jennifer Lolli-Hall, current Smoketown Rotary Club President, and Club Past Presidents Ernie Stepoulos and Judy Couillard will each receive a Paul Harris Fellow Award, named for the founder of Rotary International. A Paul Harris Fellow Award is presented to an individual who - to quote the purpose of The Rotary Foundation - is "doing good in the world".
Jennifer, Ernie and Judy have each served for multiple one-year terms as President of the nascent Rotary Club in Brunswick in the club’s formative years. Chartered in April of 2018, the Smoketown Rotary Club is indebted to these three charter members for leading the service club over the past five years.
A Paul Harris Fellow Award is presented to an individual in whose name has been contributed $1,000 to The Rotary Foundation. Each honoree will receive a certificate, medallion and lapel pin in recognition of the honor accorded him/her.Thank you to all who came to support our Interact Clubs and brought their fur babies to see Santa at the Pet Photos with Santa held at H.C. Summers! Santa was great with all the visitors! A huge thanks to Abbie Ricketts brother-in-law Kevin McCarthy who served as Santa and to Jennifer Lolli-Hall for organizing the event.
