Since its inaugural luncheon on 21 April 1921, the club has had an outstanding record of philanthropic endeavour and charity work, as well as service to the cause of Rotary on the international scene. The Melbourne club is now faced with changing social and economic conditions that are causing the breakdown of community cohesion. The first Rotary club was borne out of a response to the competitive and harsh business environment of Chicago in 1905. The Melbourne club is responding to similar conditions by seeing them as an opportunity to expand the tradition of service. -- front fold over blurb Size: 8vo - over 7�" - 9�" tall.
