There were some lively activities on the social programs of the Rotary Club.  Ladies Day and Family meetings were held at the various country clubs.  Family and Crippled Children Christmas Parties began about 1926.  The fellowship featured in all of these meetings formed the strong foundation of the Rotary Club of Youngstown.  Club members also visited various industries, including the Youngstown Sheet and Tube Company’s Campbell Works, the Republic Rubber Co., the General Fireproofing Co., and the Bessemer Brick Co., a limestone plant at Wampum, Pennsylvania.
Outstanding speakers are the rule rather than the exception for most Rotary programs.  Rotary International presidents speaking in Youngstown include Arch Klumph, Frank Mulholland and Allen Albert; Ed Kelsey of Toledo, one of the pioneers in crippled children work; and Alfred Sheldon, the Rotarian who is credited with originating the slogan, “He Profits Most Who Serves the Best,” were two more of the most notable; Phil Lovejoy, Rotary International Executive Secretary, was outstanding.  Paul Harris, the founder of Rotary, spoke to Youngstown Rotary in October 1927.
