OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES AND PEOPLE 

Several principles have been developed over the years to provide Rotarians with a strong, common purpose and direction. They serve as a foundation for our relationships with each other and the action we take in the world. In particular the Objectives and the Four-Way Test guide us throughout our meetings and projects.

HISTORY OF ROTARY CENTRAL CAYMAN

About

THE CHARTER MEMBERS

The Rotary Club of Central Cayman Islands received its charter from Rotary International on October 30 1986. The Charter President was John A. Furze. All these years later, one of the original members still remain in the club, proving that Rotary is a family for life. Here is a photo of some of our past Presidents, taken in 2014.

OUR PROJECTS 

Over the years, the club has met many needs of varying sorts within the community – assistance with housing, the building of the T.E. McField Centre, the restoration of the Mastic Bridge, and hurricane relief. The club also recognises its international responsibilities and has contributed to disaster relief projects, and sanitation and clean drinking water programmes worldwide.

Rotary Central is a major contributor to the Rotary Foundation, and in 2005 achieved 100% Paul Harris Fellow status, only the second club in District 7020 to achieve this honour.

Some of our major initiatives include the Annual Music Extravaganza and the Bill Hrudey Science Fair.  

ROTARY TRIVIA

    A “comfort station” in downtown Chicago. Public restrooms were typically found only in saloons at that time, and unaccompanied women were not permitted to enter saloons.

  • How much were annual dues at the first Rotary Club?

    There were no dues at the first Rotary Club. The group voted there would be no dues and all club expenses would be paid from 50-cent fines.

  • In what country was the first Rotary Club outside of the United States? 

    The first non-USA Rotary Club was in Winnipeg, Canada, in 1912.
