The Juneau Glacier Valley Rotary Club

 

A Thumbnail History
 

The Juneau Glacier Valley Rotary Club is in its 50th year and is one of three Rotary clubs in Juneau, Alaska.  The club, with approximately 55 members, has established itself as a fun-loving but aggressive club which manages premier projects which have become mainstays in the community of Juneau.   Riverside Rotary Park,  The Southeast Alaska Foodbank Food Drive, High School Scholarships and the Pillars of America Speaker Series continue annually in addition to a variety of other community service projects.  Our strong commitment to the ideals of Rotary has been sustained throughout the club's history and can be attributed to the personalities of the club's charter members.

 


 The Rotary Club of Juneau Glacier Valley was chartered in 1964 and became the second Rotary Club in Juneau.  It's sponsor. the Juneau Rotary Club (Chartered in 1935), had grown to the point where a second club seemed appropriate for the the community. The Glacier Valley Club formally started under a provisional charter on June 30, 1964, and received its formal charter from District 504 in a ceremony on September 24, 1964, which included District Governor of District 504, Win McLean, and Juneau Rotary Club President, Tom Morgan.
