Imagine the Spring of 1920…The Twenties roared in with the founding of the Rotary Club of St. Augustine on April 10, 1920.
Prosperity, jazz music and the foxtrot took center stage. With Prohibition in effect Rotary party goers had to sneak their whisky into festivities. Rotarians flocked to Casino Night at one of St. Augustine's several casinos, including the Zorayda Club speakeasy.
Weekly meetings were held at the Ponce de Leon Hotel when it was open in the winter season and at several other hotels around St. Augustine during the off-season.
