Rotary International - A Brief History
The name “Rotary” was chosen because the club met in rotation at each member’s place of business. Soon the club became too large for this and the membership began gathering for lunch. Camaraderie alone could not sustain the club and soon service to the community became the group’s binding strength.
With Rotary blanketing much of the globe, its service projects and international goodwill programs are felt by millions of men and women worldwide. To learn more go to: www.rotary.org
