Rotary International.

Carolyn Jones of Anchorage has become the first woman to be named to the Rotary International Foundation's board of trustees. Jones, a retired attorney, was appointed to the board of 15 trustees by Rotary International President Carl-Wilhelm Stenhammar of Sweden. Women were not allowed to join Rotary clubs until 1987, the year Jones joined the Anchorage East Rotary Club.

The Rotary Foundation was established with the goal of achieving world understanding and peace through international charitable and educational programs. Rotary international now encompasses more than 166 countries, with 1.2 million members in more than 31,000 clubs.
