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?
