Rotary is a worldwide organization of
business and professional leaders that provides humanitarian service,
encourages high ethical standards in all vocations, and helps build
goodwill and peace in the world. Approximately 1.2 million Rotarians
belong to more than 31,000 Rotary clubs located in 166 countries.
Rotary club membership represents a cross-section of the
community's business and professional men and women. The world's Rotary
clubs meet weekly and are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all
cultures, races, and creeds. The
main objective of Rotary is service: in the community, in the
workplace, and throughout the world. Rotarians develop community service
projects that address many of today's most critical issues, such as
children at risk, poverty and hunger, the environment, illiteracy, and
violence. They also support programs for youth, educational
opportunities and international exchanges for students, teachers, and
other professionals, and vocational and career development.
world's first service club, the Rotary Club of Chicago, Illinois, USA,
was formed on 23 February 1905 by Paul P. Harris, an attorney who wished
to recapture in a professional club the same friendly spirit he had felt
in the small towns of his youth. The name "Rotary" derived
from the early practice of rotating meetings among members' offices.
Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a
basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:
The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
High ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of
the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each
Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal,
business, and community life;
The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace
through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united
in the ideal of service.
Rotary has Four Avenues of Service

attendance, club bulletin, fellowship,
magazine, membership development, programs, public relations,

our newsletter editor, webmaster, program chair and sergeant-at-arms.
