AN EARLIER WIZARD OF OZ?

In February 1914, Charles Penwarden wrote in his club journal 'The Manchester Rotary Life' an article entitled "What is the use of a Rotary Club?"  READ THE COMPLETE ARTICLE

 

Research

 

There is a book titled, “Leaders In Service Down Under”.  The book was released in the year 2000.  It is the story of the four RI Presidents from Australia and the RI President from New Zealand. Of the five stories included in the book, the only story written by the person himself is the story on Clem Renouf.

 

The other book that may be interest is titled, “The Rotary International Health, Hunger, and Humanity Program”.  It was written by past RI President Clem Renouf, who is considered to be the ‘Father of 3-H’.
