This week we go forward to the good old days with a look back at Rotary’s visionary entrepreneur and founder, Attorney Paul P. Harris. It’s so fitting to honor Paul Harris as our Business of the Week at the same time DG Cindi has launched the D5110 Rotary Business Network since, after all, Paul Harris himself launched Rotary based on fostering business relationships to advance “international understanding, goodwill and cooperation for the wellfare of all mankind, united through the ideal of service.” Click here to see and hear Paul Harris share how business relationships motivated him to form our first Rotary Club: https://youtu.be/btWougzjpXU (3:16)
From the video, it’s clear that Paul had a vision to blend and leverage business and social relationships. Over the years, Rotarians memorialized this vision into what has come to be known as THE OBJECT OF ROTARY, which includes “the advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.”
Paul Harris is given an honorary listing in the Rotary Business Network Directory. Click here to learn more: https://rotarybusinessnetwork.org/business-listing/paul-harris/
As we recognize Attorney Paul P. Harris this week, we also salute all business and professional Rotarians in District 5110 who are uniting to take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
