DID YOU KNOW...Did you know that the tradition of club singing began at an early meeting of the first Rotary club in Chicago in 1905 when Harry Ruggles, the fifth man to join Paul Harris, jumped on a chair and urged everyone to join him in a song. Group singing soon became a traditional part of each Rotary meeting?

Editor's Note: Much to our club's loss but RC Reston's gain, Herb Brickson recently transferred his membership to the Rotary Club of Reston. Even though he transferred, he asked that we continue to publish the Historical Notes, which he provides. And we are very happy to oblige!
