  • Charlotte West Rotary Visits Bruns Academy

    Charlotte West Rotary and The Novant Health Community Care Cruiser made a visit to Bruns Academy on December 16, where 40+ 5th grade students received their Tdap booster shots! Charlotte West Rotary Club volunteers spoke with students about making healthy choices when it comes to quenching their thirst as part of the CDC’s new “Rethink your Drink” campaign. Students were shown exactly how much sugar is in a serving of some of their favorite beverages and were given water bottles to help encourage them to drink more H20.

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.”
— RI President Sakuji Tanaka

“Friendship was the foundation rock on which Rotary was built and tolerance is the element which holds it together.”
—  My Road to Rotary
