Rotary began as an idea more than 100 years ago. Today, Rotary flourishes worldwide with 1.2 million members in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. The world’s first service club was formed on 23 February 1905 by Paul P. Harris, an attorney who wished to capture in a professional club the same friendly spirit he had felt in the small towns of his youth. The club was formed in Chicago with just 7 businessmen; Paul P. Harris, Silvester Schiele, Montague “Monty” Bear Harris, Bernard E. “Barney” Arntzen, Rufus F. “Rough-house” Chapin, Harry L. Ruggles, and Robert Fletcher. The new Rotary Club of Chicago was born. The Rotary name derived from the early practice of rotating meetings among members’ offices.

Not long after the formation of the Chicago Club, 100 years ago the very first club to Charter in Florida was the Jacksonville Rotary Club. George W. Clark, a close personal friend of Paul Harris became the first club president in February of 1912, six short years after the meeting of the first club in Chicago. Since then the Jacksonville Rotary Club has helped the growth of Rotary in Florida by fostering many more clubs. The Green Cove Springs Club is one of their most recent additions.
