In the beginning… u The first Rotary Club was organized in Chicago in 1905, by Paul P. Harris. Rotary Founder Paul Harris u The club, with four members, met in rotation at the offices of the members - thus the name Rotary. u The main purpose was fellowship and business
Service Above Self u Rotary was not long to recognize that fellowship alone would not keep a group together — there needed to be a purpose. u First project was public washrooms in downtown Chicago. u Rotary became the world’s first “Service Club”.
u Rotary International is governed by a president and a board of directors elected from all over the world. R.I. Pres. Sakuji Tanaka u Annually each District elects a District Governor u Similarly each Club elects a President. D.G. Rtn. Bal Inamdar
The Rotary Foundation Main Initiatives “World Peace through Understanding”
The Rotary Foundation
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: u First. The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service; u Second. High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying by each Rotarian of his or her occupation as an opportunity to serve society; u Third. The application of the ideal of service by every Rotarian to his or her personal, business and community life; u Fourth. The advancement of international understanding, good will, and peace through a world of fellowship of business and professional people united in the ideal of service.
We implement the object of Rotary through the Five Avenues of Service
Club Service –Those things that a Rotarian does to help make successful the running of the local club. Vocational Service –The promoting of the high ethical standards in the business and profession recognizing the worthiness of all dignified occupations Community Service –Urges every Rotarian to participate in all activities which make the community a better place in which to live. International Service –Encourage and foster the advancement of understanding and good will among people of the world. New Generation –Recognizes the positive change implemented by youth thru leadership development, exchange programs that enrich world peace
THE FOUR-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 GOOD WILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS? 4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
