Rotary International is the world’s first service club started February 23, 1905 in Chicago, Illinois by a young University of Iowa law school graduate, Paul Harris.
He invited three business associates to discuss his idea that “business relations could and should foster friendly relations.”
They decided a club format would best serve their goals. The name “Rotary” was later selected because the meetings rotated between the offices of the members.
The Chicago club was Chartered #1; our club was organized on May 1, 1911 and is Charter #27. We are the fifth oldest Rotary club west of the Mississippi. Only St. Louis, Kansas City, Lincoln and San Francisco are older.
Rotary is officially defined as
“an organization of business and professional men and women, united world-wide to provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.”
Our motto is
"Service Above Self"
and we recite the
“Four Way Test”
at the end of each Rotary meeting.
The Rotary Four-Way Test of the things we think, say or do:
Is it the TRUTH?
Is it FAIR to ALL concerned?
Will it build GOODWILL and FRIENDSHIP?
Will it be BENEFICIAL to ALL concerned?
As of June 2011, there were over 1,227,001 Rotary members, in over 33,913 Clubs located in 530 Districts in 211 Countries.
Our Rotary Club of Des Moines Club has 310 members as of July 2011. This includes the Governor of Iowa, Simon Estes, former Congressman Neal Smith and former Gov.’s Robert Ray and Terry Branstad and Tom Vilsack, who are all Honorary Members.
Selection of Rotary members is unique. Every member, with the exception of Paul Harris, is invited to join our membership by another Rotarian.
Each of you has been loaned a classification representing your business or profession. Your classification is listed on your name badge. The yellow “New Member” ribbon hanging from your badge identifies you as a new member and gives the seasoned members a chance to meet you and help you feel comfortable in our club.
