Our Mission

The Rotary Club of Franklin is one of the oldest clubs in Rotary. We were chartered on 10 November 1927, twenty two years after the formation of Rotary. Our sponsor was the Rotary Club of Waynesville.  In turn, we have sponsored clubs in Bryson City (1934), Highlands (1945), Franklin Day-Break (1997) and Clay County (2011).

Our focus has and continues to be on Service – thru support of such things as Scholarships, Four Way Test Program, Community Care Clinic, Scouting, READ2ME, Group Study Exchanges, Foreign Student Exchange, PolioPlus, Wheelchair Foundation, Panamanian rural school, Ecuadorian Prosthetic Clinic, and several others.

Our Membership has proudly provided four District Governors – CS Brown, Dennis Sanders, Gary Bray, and Gary Dills in 2016-17.
