A number of Paul Harris Fellow Recognitions will be awarded at Changeover on Tuesday night, in recognition of the outstanding contributions over the past year by some very dedicated Rotarians. The Paul Harris Fellow Recognition is named after Paul Harris, the Founder of Rotary. At Changeover this year, the club will also, for the second time, honour a Rotarian for his or her enthusiasm and commitment to the ideals of Rotary with the presentation of a Royce Abbey Award. But who is this extraordinary Rotarian, Royce Abbey, after whom the award is named, and just what is the Royce Abbey Award?
Here is one extraordinary Rotarian receiving his award from Past Rotary International President Ian Riseley. Come along to Changeover on Tuesday and find out the rest.
David Abbey will be at Changeover 2022 to assist with the presentation of the award to a Glenferrie Rotarian. To learn more about the Royce and Jean Abbey Scholarship program, click here.
