History

The first rotary club was founded in 1905 when four friends met in Chicago, USA to discuss how they could work together to help the wider community.

Cranbrook District and Rotary Club was founded in October 2016 when four Cranbrook Residents came together at Coffee Shop @143 to discuss the very same thing.
