Paul Harris, founder of Rotary International, was the guest speaker at the meeting Tuesday morning.  The speaker (who bears a striking resemblance to Steve Kaplan) told of his growing-up years and how the development of Rotary began with the wish to make friends in the business community in Chicago in 1900. 


Harris told the Rotarians of the first meetings and how the organization spread throughout the US and beyond.  He also talked about the development of the Rotary Foundation.


Two Sooner Rotary members were honored as Paul Harris Fellows.  Past District Governor, Bob Dill, recognized Jack O'Hare as a PHF plus one, and  Mary Sallee, PHF plus eight.
