Over the years, the Club has been blessed with several fine musicians making music an integral part of the program. Hans Lemcke often brought his musical friends to perform in solo and in groups. Many times Al Booth, choir director for the Presbyterian Church brought his soloists and a true love for fine music to the Club. It would not be the Holiday Season without the high school choir's annual visit in December, which has been a traditional event for at least 75 years.
Al Booth's son, Lee continued the singing tradition of the club, and excellent pianists, such as Harold Lumley, who has played since 1993, have served the club well. In addition to singing Happy Birthday during the last meeting of each month in honor of that month's birthdays, the club once sang every chance it had. However, that tradition has fallen out of favor in recent years. One song that was particularly popular was James O. Scott's Smile, Sing Along, leaving  everyone smiling and enjoying unparalleled Rotary fellowship. 
In the mid-1990s, the club adopted the moniker "The Friendly Club." The great fellowship, grand disposition, and humor of Webster Groves Rotarians are known for making our club "one of the fun ones." A vivacious and spirited group of Rotarians welcomes all guests and makes them feel at home. The feeling is genuine.
