Welcome to Rotary Club of Shreveport

 

 Our Beginnings:

On Friday, February 6, 1914, thirteen Shreveport men gathered at the Youree Hotel, at the urging of John B. Yauger.  Various professions and businesses were represented.  The thirteen men that attended established a unique meeting time of the club, 12:13 p.m., which is still in effect today.  These thirteen men unanimously agreed to the formation of the Rotary Club of Shreveport.  The club was officially chartered with the then International Association of Rotary Clubs (now Rotary International) as Club #109 on April 1, 1914.

 Over 100 years later:

We are one of the large executive clubs in the world.  From one of our first projects in World War I supporting patriotic activities to our present day projects, we continue to make a difference in the community.  In addition, our members' individual contributions to the End Polio campaign with The Rotary Foundation now exceed $1 million.
