Do you know the history of the Rotary Club of Bluffton?
Thank you, Mary O’Neill for sharing the history of how we became a chartered club:
• The first Rotary Club was founded by Paul Harris and the first meeting was held in 1905 in Chicago.
• Rotary came to SC in 1915
• After several other clubs within the state were sponsored, the Hilton Head Island Club sponsored the Bluffton Club in 1988.
• On April 25, 1988, 29 men gathered to celebrate the first Charter Night of the Bluffton Rotary Club and since then, our Club has grown and expanded into a vibrant group who has and continues to make large impacts in our local community.
