INTRO TO ROTARY

Rotary is an organization of business and professional persons, united worldwide, who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and help build goodwill and peace in the world.

Size of Rotary
There are chartered Rotary clubs in nearly 220 countries worldwide, circumventing dozens of languages, political and social structures, customs, religions and traditions. On July 1, 2020 there were 36,422 chartered clubs  with more than 1.2 million members. Rotaract for young adults over age 18 has 185,685 members in 11,223 clubs, and Interact for teenagers, ages 12-18 has 354,900 members in 15,341 clubs....all giving, serving, and making a difference in the world.  Come join us!

Rotary Motto
In 1989, Rotary International established “Service Above Self” as the principal motto of Rotary, since it best explains the philosophy of unselfish volunteer service.

Birth of Rotary & Paul Harris
Rotary was founded on February 23, 1905, by Paul Harris, a young lawyer, in Chicago, Illinois. On that day he met with three other businessmen – a coal dealer, a mining engineer, and a tailor in the tailor’s office at 127 North Dearborn Street.
