The Batavia Rotary Club has awarded Paul Harris Fellowships to four local individuals.
The award is named for the founder of Rotary International and is the highest honor a local Rotary Club can award.
This year the Batavia Rotary Club recognized two of its own members and two members of the community outside of the club.
Rotarians Bill Brown, former President of WBTA and Susie Boyce, all around community volunteer, were named Paul Harris Fellows.
Non-Rotarians Mary Pat Hancock and Paul Saskowski were also recognized.
Mary Pat Hancock for her work as chair of the Genesee County legislature and Paul Saskowski for his tireless efforts on behalf of the annual Rotary Club musical.
A donation of $1,000 is made to Rotary International on behalf of each of the four Paul Harris Fellows.
