Every Rotarian Serves as an Example to Youth”   In much of the official literature of Rotary International relating to service to young people, a special slogan will be found – “Every Rotarian an Example to Youth.” These words were adopted in 1949 by the Rotary International Board of Directors as an expression of commitment to children and youth in each community in which Rotary clubs exist. Serving young people has long been an important part of the Rotary program.  Click Read More for additional information.
