Members of Frome Rotary celebrate the 90th birthday

Frome Rotary Club kicked off the celebrations of their 90th birthday by having a one night only exhibition in Frome Museum on Monday 19th October.  

Frome Rotary President Patrick Cusworth said, “This was a unique opportunity for our members and their families and friends to look at some of the fascinating documents and photos we have of our history over the last 90 years.

“We are especially grateful to Frome Museum for continuing to display many of our past and present artifacts and documents until November 20th when the museum closes for the winter.”

The inaugural meeting of the club met in the George Hotel Frome on 21st July 1925 and the minutes show a resolution passed to form a club as part of Rotary International.  They were duly awarded their charter by Rotary International of Great Britain and Northern Ireland on 5th February 1926.
