Where Rotary International Began

In Chicago 1905, the first Rotary Club was founded as an organization where business and professional leaders could gather in friendship and serve their communities. While it is often difficult to make a difference on your own, Rotary International's vision is to bring diverse, likeminded individuals together to improve the lives of people in their communities, their nations and around the world. Since its founding, Rotary International's motto of "Service Above Self" has been embraced by more than 1.2 million people of all races and creeds in 33,000 clubs worldwide.

In 1922 the Rotary Club of Port Hope was founded. For over 90 years, our club and its members have addressed a wide range of humanitarian and community issues, to uniting with millions of Rotarians around the word to fight the deadly and crippling disease of polio, and much more.
