The Object of Rotary

What would it
take to change the world? Rotary’s 1.2 million members believe it starts with a commitment to above Self.



The object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:: First: The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service, Second: High ethical standards in business and professions. The recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying by each Rotarian of his occupation as an opportunity to service society. Third: The application of the ideal of service by every Rotarian to his personal business, and community life: Fourth: The advancement of international understanding, goodwill and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional men and women united in the ideal of service

Inching Toward the End of Polio
Presented by Rotarian Gene Hernandez
Just Imagine was the theme of this year’s Rose Parade and an easy transition for the Rotary Float theme of reaching our goal along with the help of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for the eradication of Polio in endemic countries. The award Rotary won was based on the criteria of the Most Beautiful Entry under 35 feet! Historically the Rose Parade, first in pictures and then through television, lured snowed-in east coast and Midwest residents to a new gold rush; the expectation of golden California sunshine year round. While the Rose Parade still has that effect, the Rotary float specifically made the public aware of Rotary and what we have accomplished with the help of the Gates Foundation. The float was seen by 44 million people in North American. The gold then Rotary mined with our float was a heart of gold to reach out to those that can continue to help and support our efforts. Rotary floats are funded through private donations. The float cost $125,000; used the generous time of 1300 volunteers; volunteers worked 11,520 hours in 8 hour shifts. To be part of this event next year go to, or talk directly to Rotarian Gene Hernandez.

A History of the Rotary Bulletin – Bearing Submitted by Rotarian Al McCombs
Chino Rotary president Ralph C. Homan signed the first issue of the Chino Rotary Bulletin, produced at the opening of his year, July 1, 1940. “The Bulletin believes it can be made of considerable value to the club, but certainly it will take the interest and cooperation of all members to put the plan over with maximum results,” he said. There followed a list subjects that could be included. Issue No. 2, dated July 10, made note of the 1940 Rotary International convention held in Havana, Cuba, at which $50,000 was approved to help alleviate human suffering because of the growing conflicts in the world, and reported on the annual club banquet and installation at which alfalfa farmer A.H. (Si) Simons passed the gavel to attorney Homan.

On November 2, 1949, the day of the visit of District (162) Governor Frank V. Crane, The Bulletin became The Bearing, a name derived from an adjunct of the Rotary Wheel. Most copies of The Bearing are on file through September 1995, thanks to the efforts of the late Chino historian and Rotarian, Charles Reher. However, issues from that time until July, 1906 are missing. If anyone has a collection, I would appreciate knowing about it. From the mid-nineties the Bearing blossomed out in color and style, and in the past two years is available online, thanks to editor Meg Yacawych.
