The Rotary Club of Shelbyville has now given over a quarter of a million dollars to the Rotary Foundation. Every dollar given goes towards the eradication of polio and to provide grants for community and international projects.
Recently, the club has had several members reach milestones by receiving Paul Harris Fellow certificates, pins and medallions. Some of the members have received Multiple Paul Harris Fellow pins by receiving a PHF+ 1, PHF +2 and PHF +3 status.
