|Claude Bradley, a long time member of the Rotary Club of Claremont, and his wife, Myrna, left an endowment to the Club of sufficient size to enable the Club to award a $1000 contribution to the Rotary Foundation in the form of a Paul Harris Fellowship annually to a "non-Rotarian" for outstanding volunteer service to the community. The endowment was established in 1986 as a memorial to Claude's parents, Robert and Rene Bradley, for the many sacrifices they made to save Claude's eyesight following a terrible accident he suffered at age 16. The recipient of this award shall be a person who has performed volunteer service to others considered exemplary in nature, not a single act but continuing service for a period of years, and whose volunteerism shall have been to the Claremont area community-at-large rather than a select few individuals. The recipient shall be a resident of Claremont whose accomplishments are known to a substantial number of community members. In short, this person shall be one whose character mirrors the Rotary principle of "Service Above Self".
