Saline Rotary Club member Karen Ragland was all smiles after receiving the Paul Harris fellow pin..
The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International honored Saline Rotary Club member Karen Ragland for her contributions.
At Thursday's Rotary luncheon at Travis Pointe Country Club, Ragland received the Paul Harris Fellow recognition. It is awarded to those people who donate $1,000 to The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International.  It was Ragland's second time receiving the honor.
Ragland, a tireless community volunteer who is currently performing interim duties for Saline Main Street, is owner of Design Hub.
Many notable people are Paul Harris fellows, including U.S. President Jimmy Carter, Russian President Boris Yeltsin, U.S. astronaut James Lovell, UN Secretary-General Javier Perez de Cuellar, and Jonas Salk amoung other.  
Over the last 100 years Rotary Foundation has spent $3 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects.  One of the foundation's main goals is the eradication of polio. For every dollar Rotary commits to the eradication of polio, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation commits $2.
