Rotary Club Merger Increases Presence in Stillwater
Two local Rotary clubs merged membership and operations as of October 1, 2022. Stillwater Rotary, originally chartered in 1921, and Stillwater Frontier Rotary, chartered in 1974, will henceforth be known as Stillwater Frontier Rotary and continue the 1921 charter date, making this one of the oldest Rotary clubs in the nation. The newly merged club boasts a membership exceeding 110 Rotarians which will rank in the top three largest Rotary clubs in Oklahoma.
The combination of the clubs will strengthen their efforts to serve our community through projects such as backpacks for kids, Mobile Meals, supporting Our Daily Bread and reading programs in the schools, just to name a few. Through Rotary International, the club will continue to support projects to provide clean water to communities in underdeveloped nations and continue the effort to eradicate polio through Polio Plus.
Frontier Rotary meets weekly with a variety of guest speakers from community organizations, OSU, and city, county, and state government leaders. Meetings are at 12 Noon on Thursdays at the Best Western Plus Cimarron Hotel and Suites, 315 North Husband.
