 HOW WAS ROTARY FORMED?

Rotary began on the evening of 23 February 1905, when Paul Harris met with three business colleagues in hopes of recapturing in a professional club the same friendly spirit they had experienced growing up in small-town America. They called their club the Rotary Club of Chicago, after the early practice of rotating weekly meetings among members' offices. As the Rotary movement grew and clubs were chartered around the world, Rotarians took up community service projects and promoted ethical standards in business.

A century later, over 1.2 million men and women are members of more than 32,000 Rotary clubs in 168 countries form a global network of business and professional leaders who volunteer their time and talents to serve their communities united under the banner Service Above Self. Through the numerous humanitarian, intercultural, and educational programs of Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation, Rotary clubs work to realize Rotary's vision of improving the human condition and to advance world understanding and peace.

One of the world's largest and most successful volunteer service organizations, Rotary Clubs and 529 Districts thorough out the  world, carry out humanitarian programs that address today's challenging issues, such as hunger, poverty, illiteracy, and the eradication of polio, the disease that has crippled millions of people.
 

                           Object of Rotary

The 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:  

FIRST. The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;  

SECOND. 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;  

THIRD. The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life;  

FOURTH. The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

 
              
THE 4-WAY TEST

                    of the things we think, say or do

 

     1  Is it the TRUTH?

 

       2  Is it FAIR to all concerned?

 

      3  Will it build GOODWILL and

          BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?

 

     4  Will it be BENEFICIAL  to all concerned?

 

Can be applied profitably in relations with others in the home, community, business, national and international life; particularly to proposed plans, policies, statements and advertising in business and the professions; to proposed legislation in government; to relations between teachers and students in the schools.
