New Member Information

Organized on September, 23, 1914 by the Savannah Club, the Rotary Club of Augusta was formed nine years after the birth of Rotary. James M. Hull was the first president.

Principle of Rotary

Rotary fosters the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and encourages development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service (networking), high ethical standards in your profession (The Four-Way Test), and advancement of international goodwill and understanding through peace and education through a world fellowship. We have four avenues of service: Club Service, Community Service, Vocational Service, and World Service. We support worldwide efforts to promote literacy, health, and peace. This is done through programs such as PolioPLUS, the placement of new wells for clean drinking water in poverty-stricken areas, and various youth programs.
