Congratulations to Rotarian John Battern on receiving his Paul Harris +1 recognition pin. The Paul Harris Fellow recognition acknowledges individuals who contribute, or who have contributions made in their name, of $1,000 to The Rotary Foundation. (Donations are cumulative.) For each $1,000 past that, a new pin with a + and the number are added to that. Donations to the Foundation by club members go toward both projects globally as well as district grants. Iowa Great Lakes Rotary has been the recipient of numerous district grants over the years, including grants toward Shelby's Playground renovations, the Pavilion at YMCA Camp Foster, and purchasing chlorination kits for water in Africa. Thank you John for your support of the Rotary Foundation.  John is shown receiving his pin from Iowa Great Lakes Rotary Immediate Past President Mary Skopec.
