EDWARDS, Colorado – Rotary International recently recognized 28 members of the Rotary Club of Edwards as Paul Harris Fellows. Club President Richard Dangler presented the recognitions at the end-of-year meeting at Cafe Milano in Edwards.

Those programs include an array of projects that save and invigorate the lives of people around the world and enhance international friendship and understanding. Foundation programs provide educational opportunities, food, potable water, health care, immunizations and shelter for millions of persons. These activities are funded, implemented and managed by Rotarians and Rotary clubs around the globe.

In addition to supporting the Rotary Foundation, the Rotary Club of Edwards provides Rotary Youth Leadership opportunities for teenagers, supports Rotary Youth Exchange by promoting cultural understanding, promotes Group Study Exchange, provides scholarships and supplies for children locally and in third world countries, supports Ambassadorial World Peace Scholarships, and supports Copa Edwards (youth soccer) and many other worthy community programs.
