TRIVIA TIME!


What a great way to start the new year - let's all learn a little more about Rotary! See if you can answer the questions below (without peaking at the answers on the last page of the Informer):
1. How many people attended the first Rotary meeting on Thursday evening, February 23, 1905?
2. What was the first Rotary Club community project?
3. Who can you blame for introducing singing to Rotary Club meetings and what was his profession?
4. Men With Friends; The Blue Boys; The Conspirators; The Round Table. What do these names have in common?
5. Who was the first president of a Rotary Club?
6. How much were annual dues at the first Rotary Club?
7. For how long was Rotary primarily a friendship and business reciprocity organization?
8. In what country was the first Rotary Club outside of the United States?
Keep an eye on the District Facebook page for more Rotary trivia!
