There are three Rotary Clubs in Summerville – the Summerville Club (meets for lunch) founded in 1927; the Summerville Oakbrook Club (breakfast); and the Summerville Evening Club (dinner). Collectively, these clubs have over 160 members and have a long history of serving community needs and performing Rotary service projects. After Hurricane Hugo Rotary was a key player in forming a Crisis Ministry that raised over $250,000 and more in materials. More recently, the clubs support good works such as the “Gift of Literacy” book donation program, construction of a covered bus stop structure, and “random acts of kindness” monthly.
