February 23rd is the 105th birthday of Rotary. Rotary founder, Paul Harris, started the first Rotary club meeting with his business associates on 23 February 1905 in Chicago and discussed his general plans for their Rotary club meetings. To celebrate, Rotarians around the world are lighting up historic landmarks, such as the Egyptian Pyramid of Khafre, the Obelisk of Buenos Aires in Argentina, and Chicago’s Wrigley Building, with the End Polio Now logo today.
We are extremely delighted to get Rick E.’s comments and his choice of Harriet Tubman. To celebrate Black History/Heritage Month, Harriet Tubman receives our recognition and admiration as a tribute to her awesome inspiration and incredible passion for freedom and for helping people.
