With emphasis on promoting Rotary’s public image in D 3090 DG Bagh Singh Pannu has initiated installation of the bust of Rotary International Founder Paul P Harris in 20 clubs in the district which have their own community halls. The bust sculpted in black metal measures 3 feet tall and 2 feet wide and was made in Hyderabad at a cost of Rs 40,000, said Pannu.
RC Sri Ganganagar was the first club in the district to have the Paul Harris bust installed in its Rotary Hall on July 1 and “it has boosted the morale of our members,” said Club Secretary Harvinder Singh Sandu.
Formed in 1959, the club got its own building 20 years ago and the venue hosts festivals like Navaratri, Diwali and Holi for its 115 members. “DG Pannu has planted the first sapling of the year at the garden in front of our building. We hold regular meetings at the hall,” said Sandu.
