Welcome Rotarians In our midst today are some men who wear a cogged-wheel emblem in their lapels. They are Rotarians and there are more than 580,200 of them in the world. They belong to 12,000 Rotary clubs that are spread across the face of the earth in 129 countries. Rotarians visiting Algona are here with their families to attend the annual conference of the Rotary district in which this community is located. The 500 Rotarians here for the two-day meeting represent 47 clubs in the northern half of Iowa. Now 60 years old, Rotary holds a position of leadership as an organization devoted to the improvement of communities, the elevation of business practices, aid to youth, and the furtherance of international understanding. The Rotary motto is "Service above Self" and Rotarians of this city have demonstrated in many ways belief in the concept of serving others. Recent examples of Rotary service here are the sponsorship of Boy Scout Troop No. 70 and assistance in furnishing the Good Samaritan Home. The purpose of the Rotary conference in Algona is to further a program of service in this area and in the separate communities that comprise it, and to help Rotarians and others better understand the aims of Rotary and how best to achieve them. 7 a.m. Pioneer Breakfast honoring Rotary members 20 years or over.
