PARIS — The Oxford Hills Rotary Club recently presented Joe Galletta, who is celebrating 10 years as owner of Ripley & Fletcher Ford in Paris, with the Paul Harris Fellow award.

The award comes with a $1,000 donation made to the Rotary Foundation, the charitable arm of the organization. It’s named after the founding Rotarian and presented someone who exemplifies Rotary’s motto “Service Above Self.”

The award was made to recognize Galletta’s interest in and dedication to the Rotary Club by providing time for employees to participate in club activities. Over the years Galletta has supported Oxford Hills Rotary Club’s fundraisers by purchasing tickets for lobsters, buying cheese wheels, and especially donating used vehicles for the annual auction and yard sale.
