The Rotary Club of Antioch was established in 1982 and has provided continuous service to the area communities since that time. It is one of 34,558 clubs worldwide, and Rotary International membership now exceeds 1,220,000 men and women.
The primary object of Rotary is the advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world of fellowship of business and professional persons united in the idea of community service.
Local meetings are held on a weekly basis and include informational programs that keep members up to date on current events, matters of service and governance, and organizational activities. The public is always welcome to attend any Rotary meeting or event in the community.
Club officers are elected annually and their tenures begin on July 1 of each year. Their installation occurs at an honorary dinner, which was held at David's Bistro in Antioch June 19 this year. Jim Menzer, the current president, passed the gavel to the new president, Bob Deiss.
In keeping with the local tradition, Deiss was presented a portrait of Paul Harris, the Chicago attorney who founded Rotary International in 1905.
