The Sparta Rotary Club is pleased to recognize Wade Fare as our community’s newest Paul Harris Fellow.
The presentation of a Paul Harris Fellow recognition is The Rotary Foundation’s way of expressing its appreciation for a substantial contribution to its humanitarian and educational programs. It is named for our founder, Paul Harris, a Chicago lawyer who started Rotary International with three business associates in 1905. Rotarians often designate a Paul Harris Fellow as a tribute to a person whose life demonstrates a shared purpose with the objectives of The Rotary Foundation.
Sparta Rotary Club Past-President John Downs had the honor and pleasure of recognizing "Coach Fare" for his many contributions to our community and to the success of the Sparta Rotary Club in its commitment to promote peace, fight disease, provide clean water, improve the health of mothers and children, support education, and encourage economic growth in our community and abroad.
