Rotary Club of London-Lambeth

2016 Community Paul Harris Fellows

 
Each year Lambeth Rotary honours a community member for his or her contributions to the community.  This Year we honour two members Pam Batzold and Lee Stitt.
 
Our newest Paul Harris Fellows Pam Batzold, current owner and Lee Stitt, now retired, have operated Kid Cents and Boutique Top Floor for 22 years. Kid Cents was established in 1994 to provide the London area with an upscale children's consignment store. Their mission is to save everyone money while recycling goods – and so provide an added ecological benefit. Kid Cents offers quality used Children's wear at affordable prices.  Since then, Kid Cents and Boutique Top Floor have expanded into ladies and men’s wear, and have a wide variety of home goods. 
Pam and Lee are honoured with Paul Harris Fellows for their many generous supports of many community entities.  They support London Community Chaplaincy by selling donated goods and sending LCC the proceeds as well as through donations to the LCC’s Free Store at Southdale.  Former Paul Harris recipient Joanne Crowe has wonderful stories to share. One in particular, about kids excited about ‘fitting in’ at school because they have the latest fashion, makes me cry. They are longtime supporters of Lambeth Harvestfest and the Lambeth Community Association also causes close to Lambeth Rotary Club.  Other initiatives include: a teen clothing project at Clarke Road school, part of that school’s Crime Stoppers club; Coats for Kids in Chatham and London; Donations to the Northern Manitoba Crafts and Books Library Club; Support for MPP Deb Matthews Book Drive; St Joseph’s Regional Mental Health; Clothing Works; Mission Services; The Princess Project; Street Connection and more!
Pam Batzold and Lee Stitt are deserving of being Paul Harris Fellows.
