It's hard to believe, but Rotary was 115 years old on February 23, 2020!
In the 115 years since Rotary was founded, seemingly everything has changed except Rotary values.
We began, and remain, committed to fellowship, integrity, diversity, service, and leadership.
While our Service Above Self motto dates to 1911, the ethos behind those words had already been ingrained by Rotary's founders.

To celebrate Rotary's 115th birthday, Rotary District 5890 held a birthday blowout for our beloved Rotary on Saturday, February 22, 2020 in the ballroom at the Crowne Plaza Hotel by ERG Stadium.
Rotarians and guests dressed in clothing from the era, and we celebrated and partied like was 1905!
Rotary clubs and organizations had project booths to display their life-changing projects at the Project EXPO!
As the pace of change worldwide continues to accelerate, the need for Rotary service is greater than ever.
It's one thing to read about service projects, quite another to see them in action and to see the grateful faces of people who have benefited from them.
Rotary projects change lives and connect the world.
