Paul P. Harris Rotary Dream 1905n Paul Harris is inspired to start an organization where men of different professions could gather in fellowship.n Return to his boyhood days in Vermont where friends got together in fellowship to discuss the topics of the day.
Paul P. Harrisn “The thought persisted that I was experiencing only what had happened to hundreds, perhaps thousands, of others in the great city … I was sure that there must be many other young men who had come from farms and small villages to establish themselves in Chicago ... Why not bring them together? If others were longing for fellowship as I was, something would come of it.”
