The Mansfield Rotary Club was formed in December 1924, in the early days of Rotary, making us one of the oldest service clubs in the area.  The founding members included a reverend, a lumber store owner, the postmaster, a funeral home owner, a dentist, a doctor, the town manager, the school local iron foundry.

The club held its first official meeting on Tuesday, December 16, 1924 at 12:15 at the Mansfield Tavern, the location they would call home until 1942.  The club was officially chartered by the parent organization on March 10, 1925.

Just as in those early years, our members still include the local dentist, the town manager, a funeral home director, and representatives from the field of hospitality, retail, insurance, and banking.   Now many new types of businesses are being represented in our club.  The club still meets every Tuesday at 12:15 for lunch at the Mansfield Holiday Inn.

WE invite you to join us.
