Each year the Naperville Rotary honors outstanding non-members with the Paul Harris award.
At their most recent luncheon at Meson Sabika, the Naperville Rotary recognized those who exemplify service above self.
“The Paul Harris awards are given in the five avenues of Rotary. So we give out an award for club service, community service, international service, vocational service and youth service,” said Julie Carlsen, a member of the Naperville Rotary.
This year’s awards went to Frank Avila, Usman Baki, Judie Caribeaux, Lenore Chemers, Gene Darfler, Jan Erickson, Karyl Grecu, Ron Keller, Syyama Pappu, Hitesh Shah Patel, Chad Pedigo and Kitty Ryan.
The awards namesake, Paul Harris, started Rotary in 1900.
