Rotary, the world’s first service organization, began with the formation of the Rotary Club of Chicago, Illinois USA on February 23, 1905. The club was started by a young lawyer, Paul P. Harris and three of his friends. They wished to recapture the friendly spirit they had felt among business people in the small towns in which they had previously lived. Their weekly meetings “rotated” among their offices, providing the new service club with its name. Today Rotary flourishes with some 33,000 clubs, and over 1.2 million men and women as club members providing community service in 166 countries.

Bayonne Rotary was Chartered May, 1920, 103 years ago, and it was started to further the goals of community service, international, understanding, health, and literacy around the world and especially in the local community.

Meetings are held weekly, every Tuesday at 7:30am at the Chandelier in Bayonne.
