Rotary was founded by Paul Harris in 1905 in Chicago, Illinois. Read more about our Founder. A "100% Paul Harris" award is given for clubs who reach a point in which all dues-paying members are Paul Harris Fellows. This is achieved through donations to The Rotary Foundation which provides grants for programs and projects in the United States and worldwide. 
The Bryan Rotary Club is Club Number 2021 of Rotary International and was chartered in 1921.

Membership in the club is by invitation and new members may be proposed by a current member in good standing.

Each active member of a Rotary club is classified according to the member's business or profession. A classification describes either the principal and recognized activity of the firm with which an active member is connected or the member's principal and recognized role or professional activity. A volunteer classification is also available.
