This summarizes our raison d'être,
Here is what has always linked the 1.675 members who have belonged and belong to the club since 1921.
After the Great War, the so-called Spanish flu epidemic, and faced with a more than uncertain peace, 16 members came together to create the Rotary Club of Paris, headed by President Gabriel Gorce,publisher of his state.
As soon as the club was created, he left for Edinburgh to invite all the participants of the 12th Rotary International Convention to Paris, which was held for the first time outside the United States. Therehe recalled that, and I quote:
"Too often men don't love each other because they don't know each other."
It is this event that, almost simultaneously with the creation of the Club of Madrid, marks the arrival of Rotary in continental Europe, which we celebrate on September 15 (slightly late due to the pandemic), but very numerous with spouses, children, friends and in particular, more than 50 Rotarians from all over the world who made the special trip.
