Happy Birthday Rotary International!

 

The first Rotary Club was founded in Chicago by attorney Paul P. Harris; on February 23, 1905, the first meeting was held there with his friends Sylvester Schiele, a coal merchant, Gustav E. Loehr, a mining engineer, and Hiram E. Shorey, a tailor.

From the beginning, some basic principles of Rotary are visible: the four came from different nations, belonged to different religious confessions and represented different professions. The club’s stated purpose was sincere friendship among the members.
