The Downtown Rotary Club of Shreveport is 100 years old. The club was established Feb. 5, 1914. The Centennial Celebration has already included a gathering at the Noel Library on the LSU-S campus, and a special luncheon where the speaker was Carl Chinnery. Mr. Chinnery spoke of how polio touched his family, causing the death of one of his brothers, and limitations for the others. Rotary International was instrumental in eradicating polio, and the Downtown Rotary Club of Shreveport helped fund that effort. The Downtown Rotary also started the wheels in motion to create the United Way, and help many non-profits in our area. With the motto Service Above Self, the Downtown Rotary Club of Shreveport has lived up to their motto, and pledge they will do the same the next 100 years.
