Los Banos Rotary Club History

The Los Banos Rotary Club has a long and fairly well documented history.

The Rotary Club of Los Banos was organized on June 11, 1940 by a group of citizens known as the Cosmic Club. Today, the Los Banos Rotary (Club 585) continues to support and serve not only our local community, but regional and international Rotary Projects as well.

Thanks to being given permission to re-print many articles from the Los Banos Enterprise, (where most of the stories below were originally first published), we can provide you with insight not only to the history of our local club, but indeed to the history of Los Banos itself!

We would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to the Los Banos Enterprise for allowing us to republish most of the stories linked below. We would like to especially thank Amy Yancey for all of her hard work in typing and transcribing the text of the documents that appear below from the archives of the Los Banos Enterprise.

This section is a work in progress, we are still looking at the possibility of transcribing even more pages from the newspaper to flesh this section out.
