Wenatchee Rotary Club - Stories and Events
Thank You Rotary - A video of Rotary and Polio as presented at our "End-of-Year" Celebration on June 27, 2019. This may have helped us raise $300 at the meeting, putting us over the top of President Pete's audacious goal of $10,000.
 
 
Wenatchee Rotary Club was chartered on February 1, 1921, the 815th club formed.  We are now known as club #227. Below is a copy of the original charter document.
