For newer members, and those who need a reminder, here is what PHF and PHS mean:
Paul Harris Fellowship (PHF)—acknowledges individuals who contribute, or who have contributions made in their name, of $1,000 to The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International.
PHF was established in 1957 to show appreciation for and encourage substantial contributions. The number of PHF reached 1 million in 2006. 
Paul Harris Society (PHS)—recognizes Rotary members and friends of The Rotary Foundation who elect to contribute $1,000 or more each year to the Annual Fund, PolioPlus Fund, or approved global grants. 
Congratulations to all our Paul Harris Fellows and Paul Harris Society members! For more information on TRF and donating, contact David Clynes.
