Long named Paul Harris FellowPublished 3:51pm Tuesday, May 21, 2013
Morgan County Commission Chairman Ray Long has been named a Paul Harris Fellow by the Daybreak Rotary Club in Decatur.
A donation was made in honor of Long to the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International.
Such a contribution is often made by an individual to recognize the good works of a family member, friend or public servant, according to club attorney Gay Maloney.
Long was keynote speaker at the club’s May 8 meeting and did not know he would be a recipient of the award, but was elated after being tapped.
“I am very honored to receive this award,” Long said. “It was a complete surprise. These are the kind of surprises you like to get. Rotary means so much to our area and I’m glad to be a part of such a hard-working group. To receive this honor from them means so much to me.”
Long is also a member of the Decatur Rotary Club that meets at noon.
Long received a pin, certificate and medallion to commemorate the honor.
