As in many other ventures the 'Aussies' couldn't leave the concept alone and developed their own approach to the Paul Harris Fellow scheme. It would seem that early on in the scheme's history, clubs in Australia began purchasing a Paul Harris Fellowship in the name of an individual as an award and in recognition for a range of meritorious reasons. This approach has seemed to become a feature of Australian clubs, though it has spread overseas as well. Over the years our club has awarded sixteen Paul Harris Fellowships to members and non-members and one member made a voluntary contribution to the Foundation. Included in the above list are current members who received a Paul Harris Award from their previous Rotary Club.
