Paul Harris Fellows
- Our club is proud of our annual contribution to the Rotary Foundation, both as a club from our operating budgets and by individual members.
- Rotary members who contribute a significant amount of funds to the Rotary Foundation are recognized as Paul Harris Fellows and our club is proud of the large number of Paul Harris Fellows in our membership.
- In addition to our annual contributions, we also host a number of fundraising events to support our Rotary Foundation.
- The Rotary Foundation Walk is one example which is held every year in our District to support the Rotary Foundation.
The Rotary Foundation Walk 2020 in Kingston was held at the Lemoine Point Conservation Area and it raised $1100 for the Rotary Foundation.
The Rotary Foundation Walk for District 7040 was scheduled for Saturday, 9 May 2020 in Canton, New York. But due to the social distancing restrictions, the walk was not permitted. However, a small but dedicated group of Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Kingston-Frontenac braved the cold weather and participated in a small groups (no more than four) walk at the Lemoine Point Conservation Area in Kingston. A total of $1100 was raised for the Rotary Foundation that day. Thank you for the walkers and supporters for making this possible in these difficult circumstances.
Kingston Frontenac Rotary Club was the host of District 7040 Foundation walk in 2018 and again in 2019.
The District 7040 2018 Foundation walk was hosted by the Kingston Frontenac Rotary Club. Many thanks to Rotarian Murray Matheson who masterfully set up this event.
