HISTORY OF THE ROTARY CLUB OF SUPERIOR
Wondolkowski Presents Club's History
Tom Wondolkowski outlines some of the early history of the Rotary Club of Superior chartered in 1912. What is most apparent is the Club's long tradition of providing support to this community. There was a Club fund raising motto "Put your shoulder to the wheel". The wheel they were referencing was the Rotary cog. One of the early community projects was the annual Dog Derby Races that was held on Tower Avenue. The first Dog Derby was held in 1919 and was held 12 more years. Young boys would hitch and race the sled dogs. There were also many incredible projects that had roots in the politics of the day.
