As the PLRC approaches its 2025 Diamond Anniversary, we herein strive to spotlight the extra- ordinary work undertaken by the PLRC’s active members, board members, event organizers, and presidents. The PLRC especially recognizes the resolute leadership of its past presidents and District Governor. Click here for the listing.  

They have not led followers. They have inspired leaders. This integrated, evolving club history illustrates its dedication to Rotary's Four-Way Test. Our club's About Us webpage thus proceeds via the PLRC’s prominent events, with a sprinkling of significant non-fundraising programs portraying the PLRC's social acumen.   
 
What is "Rotary?"
There are many characteristics of a Rotary club, as well as the activities of a million Rotarians. In 1976, Rotary's International Board of Directors initiated the quest to state a concise definition of the fundamental aspects Rotary. Rotary’s Public Relation Committee then decided to craft a one-sentence definition. After numerous drafts, the committee presented the following definition. It appears in various Rotary publications: 

Rotary is an organization of business and professional persons, united 
  worldwide, who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical 
  standards, and help build good-will and peace in the world.
