ABOUT SALT LAKE CITY ROTARY CLUB
On February 23, 1905, a young attorney named Paul Harris formed the first Rotary Club in Chicago. His goal was to create an organization where business leaders could meet and together serve their community. The original club rotated their weekly meetings between the various business locations of Club members. This custom eventually led to the name “Rotary.” Since 1905, individuals of practically every nationality and religion have embraced the ideals established by that first club. In 1911, six years after the founding of the first Rotary club in Chicago, Salt Lake City businessman Wesley E. King created Utah’s first Rotary Club. The Salt Lake City Rotary Club was chartered as the 24th club worldwide and is known by its members as “Club 24.”
YESCO specializes in the manufacture of custom electric signs, sign maintenance and out-of-home advertising. In addition, YESCO operates sign and lighting service repair stores throughout North America as well as a sign financing business. Thomas Young founded the company in Ogden, Utah, in 1920 after borrowing $300 from his father. YESCO began by offering wall painted advertisements, gold-leaf window lettering and coffin plates.
