Special to the Times


BLYTHE - Wayne Cusick was recently honored by Rotary Foundation for creating the Paul Harris Society during his tenure as governor of District 5340 in 1996-1997.

According to Rotary International, when Cusick was governor from 1996-1997 he founded a district recognition program that encouraged members to give yearly gifts of at least $1,000. Cusick pushed Rotarians to give the gifts to what became the Paul Harris Society. What began as a district program has now spread throughout Rotary Clubs worldwide and is now responsible for the financial stability of The Rotary Foundation. The Paul Harris Society donated $39.1 million of the $110.7 million that it received in donations.

The program has become so successful that trustees adopted the program as an official Rotary recognition program in January 2013.
