Over A Century of Service in Indiana

Rotary International started in Chicago, Illinois in 1905 with 4 friends who wanted to share ideas, build meaningful partnerships and give back to the community. By following the principal of ‘Service Above Self,’ Rotary has grown to 1.2 million members worldwide who serve their community, one project at a time.

It’s been over 100 years since the first Rotary Club was chartered in Indiana. In fact, Indiana is home to some of Rotary’s oldest clubs. Rotary’s strong commitment to serving others in the community has made a meaningful impact on the lives of Hoosiers. These examples are only beginning to scratch the surface.
