Lincoln Rotary Club #14
LINCOLN, NEBRASKA
Organized June 6, 1910
Chartered August 18, 1910
July 2010 Club of the monthOrganization Lincoln Rotary is Lincoln’s oldest service organization. It was the 14th Rotary Club founded and has published a weekly newsletter, The Propeller, since 1916. Lincoln Rotary came into being as a direct result of the efforts of the St. Louis Rotary Club. The St. Louis club president, who had business relations with F. C. “Dad” Phillips, came to Lincoln in late May, 1910 and received a promise from “Dad” Phillips that a Rotary Club would be organized in Lincoln.



On June 6, 1910 the selected group met in the Phillips Plumbing Shop and Lincoln Rotary Club #14 was born with F. C. Phillips as President.

A 2010 revised history is now online

Recognized by RGHF July of 2010 Rotary History Day Awards
