Early Paul Harris Fellows

Major Donors

The individuals listed below have been recognized as 'Paul Harris Fellows,' by Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation. Paul Harris was the founding 'father' of the Rotary movement in 2905. The 'Paul Harris Fellow' title recognizes that a gift of $1,000 or more has been contributed to The Rotary Foundation, or when such a gift has been given in someone's name. One doesn't need to be a Rotarian to be recognized as a 'Paul Harris Fellow.'

Until about 2000 club tradition used 'Paul Harris Fellow' as club recognition for extraordinary club service and commitment to the ideals of Rotary. Between mid 1990s and 2002 Rotary International and District 7690 'culture' shifted from using the 'Paul Harris Fellow' as an award, to using it as recognition of an individual's financial commitment to The Rotary Foundaton as a significant Rotary resource for 'doing good in the world.'

James M. "Jack" Green became the first member of the Rotary Club of Furnitureland to be elected as Governor of District 7690. His term was during the 2000-2001 Rotary year. On July 8, 2000 the Rotary Club of Furnitureland achieved the status of a '100% Paul Harris Fellow Club' when all members had achieved the designation of 'Paul Harris Fellow.' In 2008 Rotary District 7690, Piedmont North Carolina became the first of the approximately 530 Rotary districts worldwide to become a '100% Paul Harris Fellow Club District.'

Furnitureland was the 8th club in District 7690 and the 215th club in the Rotary world to become a '100% Paul Harris Fellow Club.' Rotary Club of Furnitureland continues to maintain its '100% Paul Harris Fellow' designation by inviting all of its members to become 'Paul Harris Fellows.' After January 2002 the record of sequence of when newer members became 'Paul Harris Fellows' became ambiguous and the club's archivist apparently let the practice drop.
