The Rotary Club of Grahamstown Sunset was chartered in June 1999 - the second Rotary Club in the town. The club appealed to business owners and professionals who wanted to meet in the evenings, rather than at lunchtime as the the Rotary Club of Grahamstown did - hence the name Grahamstown Sunset! Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Grahamstown (which was chartered d in 1949), the new club quickly developed its own character and style. With a "we can do anything!" attitude and an energy and work ethic that is the envy of many clubs in the district, the Rotary Club of Grahamstown Sunset has served the local community with distinction, bringing focus and action to the most critical needs.
Rotary International was started in 1905 by Paul Harris in Chicago. Initially started for fellowship with business colleagues, Harris soon turned it into a service club, and the movement now boasts 1.2 million Rotarians across the world, in 31 000 Rotary Clubs in 166 countries. The name “Rotary”
derived from the early practice of rotating meetings among members’ offices.
Rotary is a worldwide organisation of business and professional leaders that provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and help to build goodwill and peace in the world. Members operate by the maxim, “Service above self”, and all Rotarians are charged to test everything they think say or do with the 4-way test :
1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?"
