It is Always Fun to Come Across a Bit of History! 

While in Chicago recently, Wayzata Club member, Mark Lauffenburger, stumbled across this plaque.  
The Rotary Club of Chicago was founded on February 23, 1905. Leaders of the club went on to establish Rotary International in 1910. Paul Harris, Rotary's founder, became the first international president and Ches Perry, of ROTARY/One became the first general secretary of the newly formed international office.
The Rotary Club of Chicago is still going strong.  If you would like to see what they are up to, visit here.
