Clubs around the world also take part in international service projects, in a global effort to bring peace and international understanding to the world."Rotaract" stands for "Rotary in Action", although the name originally comes from a combination of "Rotary" and "Interact" (International + Action), the high school level program created by Rotary International. The purpose of Rotaract is to provide an opportunity for young men and women to enhance the knowledge and skills that will assist them in personal development, to address the physical and social needs of their communities, and to promote better relations between all people worldwide through a framework of friendship and service
In 1905, Paul Harris and his club agreed a wheel should be the emblem of Rotary. Harry Ruggles, a printer, chose a buggy wheel that was simple in design, a bold circle with a hub and spokes. It was enthusiastically accepted by the first Rotary Club, of which Ruggles was member number five. Ruggles is therefore credited for designing the first "print" or "name badge" version of the wheel.
