We are so pleased to honour the contributions of Nick and Glayde Rizzo to our community by making them Paul Harris Fellows.  Nick was a Rotarian in the Brantford Rotary Club (Friday) for over 30 years.  He served on their board, many committees and helped to establish the YOuth Exchange program.  An avid runner, Nick and some of his running friends got together one year and held the 'Boston to Brantford' run as a fund raiser.  That little has now grown into the Brantford Classic, which raises close to $100,000 every year to help our community.  Click on 'Read More' to learn more about Nick and Glayde's contribution to Rotary and to read about the Paul Harris Fellow recognition.

The Paul Harris Fellow award is a a true honour within the Rotary community and it's one that Rotarians have the pleasure of using to recognize non-Rotarian community heros, like Nick and Glayde Rizzo.  You can learn more about the history of the Paul Harris Fellow recognition by clicking here.
