Rotary Foundation
Centenary
Celebration Service.

 


A celebration service was held in Blackburn Cathedral on Sunday 24th June to mark the Centenary of Rotary Foundation. It was created in 1917 by Rotary International's 6th President Arch C Klumph as an endowment fund for Rotary "to do good in the world". An initial contribution of $26.50 set in motion a powerful force that has since helped millions of people around the world. The teddy is Pinky who has become the mascot to front the campaign to eliminate the world of the crippling disease polio.
