The month of February is very special in the Rotary calendar since it is designated Peace and Conflict Prevention/Resolution (formerly World Understanding) Month.
 
Participation Ideas:
  • Offer support to marginalized groups that are at risk of violence or persecution.
  • Identify triggering or accelerating factors in the conflict and work to mitigate them.
  • Provide relief to those who have fled areas of conflict.
  • Help children who have been orphaned, injured, or traumatized by conflict.
  • Incorporate conflict resolution and mediation strategies into service projects involving local schools, orphanages, workplaces, and community centers.
  • Recruit candidates for a Rotary Peace Fellowship. Up to 100 peace fellowships are offered annually at Rotary Peace Centers at universities around the world.
  • Pursue projects that address the underlying causes of conflict, including poverty, inequality, ethnic tensions, lack of access to education, and unequal distribution of resources.
  • Participate in fellowship and service activities with Rotary clubs in other parts of the world to promote understanding and peace.

Room 711 — Rotary’s Birthplace 

The number 711 has a very special significance for Rotary. Room 711 of the old Unity Building, formerly located at 127 North Dearborn Street in downtown Chicago, Illinois, USA, was the birthplace of Rotary. It was in that historic room, which was the office of engineer Gus Loehr, where Paul Harris first met with several friends to discuss his new idea of a club for professionals and businessmen. 

It took extensive research and dedication by a few Chicago Rotarians to preserve the room and restore it to its 1905 authenticity. For years, Room 711 was preserved as a miniature Rotary museum by Rotarians around the world who voluntarily belonged to and contributed annually to the Paul Harris 711 Club, which provided funds for leasing, maintenance, and preservation. In 1989, when the Unity Building was about to be torn down, members of the 711 Club carefully dismantled the landmark room and placed its contents in storage. There it stayed until 1994, when the re-created Room 711 found a permanent home at the RI World Headquarters in Evanston, where this piece of Rotary’s heritage is preserved.
