Rotary International
A Small Club Expands Worldwide
 
On February 23, 1905, four friends got together in the office of a coal merchant in Chicago. It was the idea of attorney Paul Harris, who invited Gustave Loehr, Hiram Shorey, and Silvester Schiele. The friends met every week, each time in a different office as they rotated the meetings. That practice led to the name, the Rotary Club. From that first club has grown an organization of over 33,000 clubs and 1.2 million members.
 
The purpose of the organization is to bring business and professional leaders together to set high ethical business standards, perform service to society, and improve peace and goodwill worldwide. Clubs typically meet weekly at breakfast, lunch, or dinners that blend social events with activity planning. The two main mottos of Rotary International are “Service above Self” and “They profit most who serve best.”
