Dr. Bob: Anthropologists see stuff others miss . . .

It was a tad chilly last Friday at the Salt-grass. Even inside the Nawth Fawty. We had to give up the outer area and scoop food from in-side the room. But the warm food helped to make the room tolerable. Whew. Only ten of us were there. And we behaved honorably. Don’t let this get out!

President Lacie noted that we would be meet-ing here now, not at the Outback, and noted the EarlyAct meeting on Thursday. Ben noted that Alisa has accepted the President position for next year, too. Woohaaaw! And Dr. Ron noted that the car bash has been cancelled. Short-ages of stuff, wouldn’t you know?

Dr. Bob the elderly then re-peated a program he gave about five years ago. And everybody stayed the full time! He talked about the necessity of mutual aid in families when it’s asked for throughout Africa, Asia, and Latin American. Do it, or get booted. Sharing food and living space has its advantages. Grandma keeps the valuables for others. But when something like electricity comes, sharing goes downhill, houses get further apart, money be-comes more important, and interest in moving to cities grows. With that comes less sharing and not knowing who you can really trust, etc. Also, everybody does more special-ized work as money incomes rise. If a hurricane or earthquake hits, the most favored are those who live out in the country, who have the most friends, who know how to scrounge food from a rural environment, who know how to hunt and fish, and who believe in a Higher Power. Self sufficiency pays off.

Jason visited from the Chamber of Commerce, and may be joining us! Keep on praying!

Penalty Box

Beginning on September 2, we are going to penalize anyone $1 who doesn’t wear their name tag at the meetings. This should help us to get to know each other, and be especially helpful to new members as our Club grows.

What is a Paul Harris Fellow?
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, the precursor to Ambassadorial Scholarships. 
The first Paul Harris Fellows include 1937-38 RI Director Allison G. Brush and longtime RI Treasurer Rufus F. Chapin, both for donations made in 1946. Mrs. Adan Vargas was the first woman to receive the recognition, for a gift made in 1953. Mrs. Harry L. Jones was the second, and one of only five people recognized for contributions made in 1957. 
Early Paul Harris Fellows received a certificate of recognition. In 1969, the Foundation unveiled the first Paul Harris Fellow medallion at the RI Convention in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA. Japanese metal artist Fiju Tsuda created the piece under the direction of then-past Foundation Trustee Kyozo Yuasa. Today, Paul Harris Fellows receive a certificate and pin. They are also eligible to purchase a Paul Harris Fellow medallion. 
Rotarians have a tradition of supporting the Foundation by honoring others. Ida LeTulle Taylor became a Paul Harris Fellow in 1978 when her husband, then-District Governor Vann Taylor, made a donation in her name in honor of their 34th wedding anniversary. The gift also made her the 25,000th Paul Harris Fellow. 
At the International Assembly in 1979, then-RI President-elect James Bomar challenged each Rotary club to make one non-Rotarian a Paul Harris Fellow. The Rotary Club of Pikesville, Maryland, USA, responded by making a donation in the name of Mother Teresa in 1980. The entertainer Pearl Bailey also became a Paul Harris Fellow through a joint effort of the Rotary clubs in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.  
The number of Paul Harris Fellows reached the one million mark in 2006.
