Thought of the Day
“The essence of Rotary will likely continue to be as undefinable as life itself. Therefore, we cannot hope for many results from definitions of Rotary but must rely on Rotarians acquiring a working knowledge of the appropriate activities which they are expected to perform, and then urge them to carry those activities into practice in their daily lives.” ~ Guy Gundaker Rotary Club of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA 1917 Rotary convention
