Service Above Self!

The Early Years[edit]

The Rotary Club of West Orlando is a member of Rotary International. District 6980 is composed of clubs in the Central Florida, USA and Zone 34.


The Rotary Club of West Orlando was chartered on the 25th of July 1968 after being recommended by ENDORSINGCLUBNAME of CITYANDSTATEOFENDORSINGCLUB.
The “seed” for our club came from Bill Coleman, a local businessman who met with several other leading young men in the area. The club was chartered in 1968 and Tom Cassell was elected as the first president. Since that time the club has donated time and money in a variety of community services to help local, national and international causes.
