Shreveport downtown Rotary Club celebrates 100th anniversary

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, La. (KTBS) -

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.

But Louisiana had reported zero mental defectives to the FBI's background check system, making us one of the worst states for keeping guns out of the hands of the mentally ill. Because of that, lawmakers passed laws to fix these broken background checks. Until this law went into effect, someone could walk...
