Rotary: 119 years of doing good in the world

Rotary started with the vision of one man — Paul Harris. The Chicago attorney formed the Rotary Club of Chicago on 23 February 1905, so professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships.  Over time, Rotary’s reach and vision gradually extended to humanitarian service. Members have a long track record of addressing challenges in their communities and around the world.

Whatever Rotary may mean to us, to the world it will be known by the results it achieves. 

Paul Harris
Rotary founder

Our ongoing commitment: That commitment endures today through an organization that remains truly international. Only 16 years after being founded, Rotary had clubs on six continents. Our members now span the globe, working to solve some of our world’s most challenging problems. We’re not afraid to dream big and set bold goals. We began our fight against polio in 1979 with a project to immunize 6 million children in the Philippines. Today, polio remains endemic in only two countries — down from 125 in 1988.

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards
Each year, the District organizes a Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) camp.  This year, at Camp Erdman, our club sponsored 4 Farrington Junior Class Council members, including the Class President.  Hear from Farrington College Counselor Regan Honda:  "The four students had a wonderful time at the camp!  I have attached a photo of the four students upon their arrival back at Moanalua HS after the camp was done.  I picked them up and brought them back to Kalihi and was able to hear their stories in the car ride LOL  All four are part of the junior class council.  The one on the right is the class president. In addition to the great camp experience, they were very appreciative of the dri fit shirts that they received! On behalf of the students, thank you!".  Regan

RYLA is an intensive leadership experience organized by Rotary clubs and districts where young people can develop leadership skills while having fun and making connections. The cost is $250 per student, which is paid by the sponsoring Rotary club.
