LC Rotary Club Meeting

More About LC Rotary Club Meeting

The Rotary Club of Lake Charles was formed by the sponsoring Rotary Club of Beaumont, Texas on May 11, 1916 as Club #229, the third club in the state and the first in what is now Rotary District 6200. District 6200 extends from Sulphur and DeQuincy to west, to Grand Isle on the east and includes Lafayette and Baton Rouge for a total of 50 clubs. The Rotary Club of Lake Charles was the first civic club in Southwest Louisiana.

While honoring the past, the club continues to look toward the future for opportunities to serve. Members are diverse in age, gender, and backgrounds, but the ideals of service are the same.

Club Projects
