The Paul Harris Fellow award is given to these recipients along with a $1,000 donation made to the Rotary Foundation on their behalf in recognition of their community service.  Greg Evans was recognized for his various contributions through serving on local boards including his church, the capital campaign for the new medical center, Habitat for Humanity as well as his past service as President of the local Rotary club.

The Althoff and Brekken and families were recognized for their continuing service to the community.  Their philanthropy continues a family tradition passed down through Ken Althoff, his wife Char and continued through his children and their spouses.
