About the Santa Cruz Rotary Club:

The Santa Cruz Club is still well known for its fun and fellowship.

This characteristic seems to be rooted in the very beginnings of the club. In the 1920's the club was a place where one could always hear a song or two sung at the lunch meeting, generally accompanied with a well-meaning prank.

At a 1929 dinner, to poke fun at the officer who installed the club several years earlier and who had a penchant for wearing bright colors, all the club members rushed to Morris Abrams clothiers and purchased the loudest, widest ties possible.

The incident garnered a lengthy a lengthy front page story in the Sentinel the next day. A pattern of fun, fellowship and service had been set.

Rotary was on its way to becoming an intricate part of the fabric of Santa cruz life.

Throughout its history, the Santa Cruz Rotary Club has attracted some of the city's most important and influential business people and civic leaders.

As the club celebrates its 75th Anniversary, this continues to be the case.

The Santa Cruz Rotary club holds weekly noon gatherings at the Santa Cruz Elks Lodge on 150 Jewell Street in Santa Cruz.
