My Road To Rotary

 

Here is My Road To Rotary by Paul P. Harris in 42 easy to read chapters. Enjoy his writing style as he envelops you in his family, childhood friends, and neighbors in rural Vermont. Discover an aspect of Paul as a prankster, and in his own words, a rapscallion, that you may not have expected of the man who founded Rotary. Learn how the youthful Paul was molded by his grandfather, a taciturn Yankee who reserved his opinions and who was tolerant of others whose opinions and lifestyles varied from his own.
