The Recognition was established in 1957 to encourage and show appreciation for substantial contributions to worthy recipients from within our Club and to members of our community who embody the values of Paul Harris.

Lynda Ryder, Past President of Rotary Etobicoke & Past District Governor of Rotary District 7070, will highlight both the local and global contribution made by the Club.

Michael Bell, Past President of Rotary Etobicoke & Past District Governor of Rotary District 7070, will outline the importance of the Paul Harris Recognition and speak to the special values that are embodied in this recognition.
