Administrative History

Rotary Club of South Austin (The Rotary Club of South Austin 1962 - District 587) was formed in direct response to the fast-developing business community south of the Colorado River. An extension committee of the Austin Rotary Club was established in early 1958 for the creation of the spin-off organization and the Charter Presentation Banquet was held at the Driskell Hotel in Austin, Texas on February 8, 1958. The club began with twenty-three charter members. In 1967, the Rotary Club of South Austin hosted the District Conference for the first time and then again in 1972, 1984-85 and 1989-90.

Adapted from the South Austin Rotary Club Roster.
