Welcome to the Rotary Club of Adelaide Light.  Let us introduce ourselves.  We are a group of like-minded men and women who meet for breakfast each Thursday and who are united in our aim to 'make a difference'.

The Rotary Club of Adelaide Light was chartered on 12 June 1986 as the first breakfast club in Rotary District 9500, South Australia, with a membership of 25 men.

In the ensuing years, the Club increased its membership to 38 (current membership) and achieved the following milestones:

  • Produced the Club's first District Governor, Tony Reade, in 1993
  • Organised and ran District 9500 conference in Broken Hill in 1994, introducing changes to the format of the conference including the composition of the speakers, providing childcare facilities, and a more relaxed dress code for the 'formal' ball on the Saturday night at the Broken Hill Racecourse.
  • Changed the Club's constitution to admit females in 1996 (females constitute 17% of current membership)
  • The Club's first female president, Katina Jones, was installed in 1999
