Our Beginnings

Originally formed for fellowship, the first Rotary club quickly evolved to use the talents and resources of its members to serve the community.  

By the end of 1905, the Rotary Club of Chicago had 30 members.  Three years later a second club was established in San Francisco, California, USA.  The next year three more clubs were established on the west coast of the United States and a fourth in New York City.  Within a few years other groups formed service clubs based on the Rotary model.  

The first club in Australia was in Melbourne (1921) closely followed by Sydney (1921) and Brisbane (1923).
