Supported WWII

World War II efforts were supported by Rotary. Servicemen were invited as guests to meetings. An honor roll of members was compiled.

Rotary members purchased war bonds and sponsored a blood bank.

Harold V. Tom of the Rotary club was District Governor in 1951-52. The local club hosted a district convention in 1956 when Charles Stewart’s term as District Governor expired.

In 1962, Rotary started the tradition of holding scholarship banquets to honor high school students who had attained high rank in scholarship.

The club promoted “Operation Crime Stop” in 1969. For this project, the club was presented the “Significant Achievement Award,” the highest award offered by International Rotary.
