Celebrate 100 years of
The Rotary Club of St. Augustine

May 1, 2020  |  THE RIVER HOUSE  |  179 Marine St.

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.

The Rotary Club of St. Augustine will be celebrating its 100th anniversary at the River House, not far from  where the founding events occurred a century ago.

Times have changed, but the Rotary Club of St. Augustine continues to have fun while fundraising. Please join us on May 1, 2020 to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of our club in True Roaring 20’s style. 


Cocktail or Great Gatsby attire, dinner, dancing, silent auction and a celebration of our Legends and Hall of Fame recipients.


The River House located at  179 Marine St. provides the perfect setting for the celebration of our club while overlooking the Matanzas River.
