Charlotte West Rotary History
IN THE BEGINNING, West Charlotte Rotary (as it was known originally) held its organizational meeting on January 9, 1962, when 29 charter members became the nucleus of the club. On January 23, 1963 a charter meeting was held at the Charlotte City Club. The charter was presented to the club and Van Weatherspoon became the first president.
“Rotary helps us to meet the basic needs of others – to provide health care, sanitation, food, and education when and where they are most needed.”
