"Whatever Rotary may mean to us, to the world it will be known by the results it achieves." -- Paul Harris, Rotary founder
Rotary started with the vision of one man — Paul Harris. The Chicago attorney formed the Rotary Club of Chicago on 23 February 1905, so professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas, form meaningful, lifelong friendships, and give back to their communities. Rotary’s name came from the group’s early practice of rotating meetings among the offices of its members.
The Rotary Club of Hinesville was chartered in 1977 and is part of Rotary International, a worldwide organization of more than 1.2 million business, professional, and community leaders.
Rotary is dedicated to six areas of focus to build international relationships, improve lives, and create a better world to support our peace efforts and end polio forever.
OUR MOTTO: Service Above Self.
Members of Rotary are people who want to give back to their communities. Clubs accept new members by invitation and we invite you to learn more about Rotary.
