South Boston Rotary Club Celebrating 58 Years

The South Boston Rotary Club was chartered in December 1953, as a member club of Rotary International with 22 active members that represented the various local businesses and community organizations.  The club was sponsored by the Danville Rotary Club and has continued its service to the South Boston area since that time.

Currently, the club is celebrating 58 years of service with 27 active members and 3 honorary members.  All Rotary Clubs are nonpolitical, nonreligious and operate under the motto "Service Above Self".  Rotary's main objective is service - in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world.  The South Boston club has established a primary focus of its projects on education in the local community and on the elimination of polio worldwide.  The club is also working with Rotary International on a potential artesian well project in the Philippines.
