February 23 is Rotary’s 119th Birthday.
That day is also called World Understanding and Peace Day.

On February 23, 1905, little did Paul Harris and his three friends realize what they were starting when they met in room 711 of the Unity Building in Chicago. Rotary has come a long way, since then, but they still have a long way to go to achieve goodwill, peace, and understanding among all people of the world.
