What is Rotary?

Our Club is part of Rotary International, a worldwide organization of men and women with more than 1.2 million members in 33,000 clubs who volunteer their time and talents to serve their communities at home and abroad.  Rotary club members are volunteers who work locally, regionally, and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto 'Service Above Self'.
Founded over 100 years ago by Paul Harris in Chicago, Rotary was probably one of the first groups to embrace 'networking' as only one member from each profession was allowed to join. Although the rules have been relaxed somewhat in the ensuing century, there is still a great cameraderie that exists between members and it is not unusual for mutually profitable business associations to develop.
