The first Rotary meeting was held on February 23, 1905 by Chicago attorney, Paul Harris. The organization is now known as Rotary International (RI), the world's oldest service club organization, with more that 1.2 million members in 32,000 clubs in 168 countries. Rotary Clubs are grouped into 529 districts led by a district governor.

The Rotary Club of East Honolulu (Club 11) was chartered on May 25, 1959 and we are in District 5000. The object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise by developing acquaintances as an opportunity for service; having high ethical standards; applying the ideal of service in our personal, business and community life; and advancing international understanding, goodwill and peace through a world fellowship. The FOUR-WAY TEST, created in 1932, is followed by Rotarians worldwide in their business and personal lives and goes like this:
Of the things we think, say or do
First: Is it the TRUTH?
Second: Is it FAIR to all concerned
Third: Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
Fourth: Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
