Arch Klumph Society visit PH Memorial and home

Monday, April 3, 2023

On March 30, 56 Arch Klumpf Society (AKS) Rotarians visited the Paul Harris House and Paul Harris Memorial. With RI translators, RI Staff and 17 of my Docent and greeter group, the fully furnished house as when Paul and Jean Harris lived there, was overflowing with curious and happy Rotarians.  All enjoyed snacks and beverages served.  My assignment to have the interior look like when Paul and Jean lived there is finally finished.

AKS guests were from USA, Brazil, Taiwan, Korea, India, Japan, Canada, Denmark and Holland and more countries.
A wonderful day was spent at our two Rotary historic sites in Evanston.
