ALBION – The Albion Rotary Club today named Becky Karls, center, as a Paul Harris Fellow, the highest honor given by a Rotary Club.
Karls is joined by Rotarians Cindy Perry, left, and Don Bishop, right.
Bishop called Karls “the secret ingredient of the Albion Rotary Club.” She is instrumental each year in many of the club’s fundraisers, including the St. Patrick’s Ham Dinner, the Turtle Race at the Strawberry Festival, the golf tournament and the fishing derby.
Karls also is active with many other community efforts, including organizing a car show this Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. at Bullard Park in Albion. That car show is a fundraiser for Hospice of Orleans County.
The Rotary Club also recognized Fred Nesbitt, a retired fruit grower, for reaching the second level as a Paul Harris Fellow.
The Rotary Club today was visited by Anna Kangasluoma of Finland. She was a Rotary exchange student at Albion in the 2007-08 school year. She now works as a nurse. She is pictured with Bruce Landis, a member of the Albion Rotary Club.
