Rotary Facts

Paul Harris formed the first Rotary Club on February 23, 1905 with three of his law clients: Silvester Schiele, mining engineer Gustavus Loehr, and merchant tailor Hiram Shorey.

It was this meeting that formed the nucleus for the thousands of clubs later organized throughout the world. Paul Harris named the new club Rotary because the members met in rotation at their various places of business. Today there are approximately 1.2 million Rotarians serving in more than 29,000 clubs in 161 countries.
