…is to make McMinnville a better place in which to live and work, and, to have fun doing it. We are a hands-on, inclusive, community service organization with a history of programs and projects emphasizing: youth, education, and the environment.

Paul Harris, 1940
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 crumble into dust; but if we work upon immortal minds…we are engraving on those tablets something that will brighten all eternity.
Arch C. Klumph, December 1928
