Celebrating a Century of Changing Lives in Marshall – and Beyond, August 24th, 2019
 
I would like to share an article from the "Marshall Morning News", December 25, 1921, written by the then-president of the Marshall Rotary Club, Frank Davis.  Frank was to become the District Governor in 1931-32 of District 48, which included the Eastern half of the entire state of Texas at the time, and eventually became District 5830, which now includes the Northwestern part of Texas, several Counties in Southeastern Oklahoma, and Miller County in Arkansas.
 
Joe Hirsch, Manager, Joe Weisman & Co, 511-517 N. Washington Ave., was one of the charter members and one of the first officers of the Marshall Rotary Club.
 
Though this article appeared one hundred years ago, in February of 1919, five months before the Marshall Rotary Club was organized, it serves as a reminder, that the question, “Is it Fair to all concerned?”, the second question in the Rotary Four-Way Test, is still valid and applies, today.
 
 
For many years following Marshall Rotary's initiation of the Scholarship Fund to provide scholarships for college-bound students, it was the practice of the club to accept a $1 per year donation to the Scholarship Fund from each member.  This dollar was collected in the member's birthday month. 
 
The Rotary Club of Marshall will be celebrating its 100th birthday August 24, 2019 at the convention Center, honoring the men and women who have faithfully led the club during a century of “Service Above Self”.  Many interesting things have been revealed in our search of the archived records of the “Marshall News Messenger”, but one of the more interesting ones popped up at a banquet March 31, 1955, which was held here in Marshall, to celebrate the golden anniversary of Rotary   International.
 
The Three-Legged Stool
