Dr. Brad Yaklich presented a plaque to Phil Renkes to honor him for the 30 plus years he served as our Foundation Director. Phil noted that the Morrison Rotary Club members have donated in excess of $550,000 to the Paul Harris Foundation. The funds raised in this foundation provides;
  • Vocational training for teachers establishing an early childhood education center in South Africa
  • Water filters, toilets, and hygiene training to prevent fluorosis, diarrhea, and other diseases in India
  • A scholarship for a medical professional in Italy to research treatments that minimize mortality rates among premature babies
  • Peace-building seminars for 200 teachers and 1,300 students in Uganda
  • Treated mosquito nets and medical services that prevent malaria in Mali
Thank you again Phil for your dedication to our club.
