The Rotary Foundation, is not to build monuments of brick and stone.
If we work upon marble, it will perish;

If we work on brass, time will efface it;

If we rear temples, they will crumple into dust;

But if we work upon immortal minds,

If we imbue them with the full meaning of the spirit of Rotary.....

We are engraving on those tablets

Something that will brighten all eternity.
