Rotary International is an international service organization whose stated purpose is to bring together business and professional leaders in order to provide humanitarian services, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and to advance goodwill and peace around the world. It is a non-political and non-sectarian organization open to all people regardless of race, color, creed, religion, gender, or political preference. The first Rotary Club was formed when attorney Paul P. Harris called together a meeting of three business acquaintances in downtown Chicago, United States, at Harris's friend Gustave Loehr's office in the Unity Building on Dearborn Street on February 23, 1905.
Las Vegas WON Rotary Club
We are known as Las Vegas WON Rotary Club. The word WON stands for "WHERE OPPORTUNITY NETWORKS" and we are proud of how our Members work together. The original objective was to charter a new Rotary club with more than 91 members. This objective would have outperformed all 37,000+ previously chartered Rotary clubs in the 112-year-old Rotary history. Our plan was to use social media to grow the largest charter ever in history. By using modern technology, out club could be made into the largest charter club in history. After becoming the largest charter ever, we can also use the same proven program to grow the other 35,000+ existing Rotary clubs. We chartered Las Vegas WON with 125 members. The official name of this newly Charter Rotary Club is . . . The Rotary Club of Las Vegas WON, Nevada, USA. Chartered April 8, 2016
