Rotary International
 
Big things have small beginnings. Rotary’s Founder, Paul Harris, a Chicago lawyer, felt somewhat lost in the large city, so he invited three friends to lunch at his office on February 23, 1905. Each week, they began rotating between offices for lunch, and this is how the name “Rotary” was established. Today, there are 1.2 million Rotarians in 168 countries, 530 Districts and almost 35,000 individual Rotary Clubs. Rotary International is the largest service organization in the world.
