FALLBROOK — To date the Fallbrook Village Rotary Club has pledged $89,000 toward the Paul Harris Foundation and has set its goal of $100,000 by the end of 2010. The foundation strives to help eradicate polio in the world, provide clean drinking water to people who do not have this “luxury” and perform many more humanitarian projects worldwide.

The Gates Foundation has pledged $250 million for eradication of polio to the Rotary Foundation, but the Rotary Foundation has to match their contribution in order for this to become a reality.

Fallbrook Village Rotary Foundation Chairman Jack Acomb (left) awards first-time Paul Harris Awards to individuals who have donated $1,000 or more to the Paul Harris Foundation: Manny Gratz, Caryn Meriwether, Carlotta Archibald, her sponsor and brother George Archibald, Melinda Stone, her sponsor and husband Gordon Stone.
