HISTORY OF THE ROTARY CLUB OF WEST SPRINGFIELD
Our club was founded on April 16, 1980, as the Springfield Breakfast Rotary Club with 25 members and met at the Springfield Howard Johnson's. The Club name was changed in 1996 to the West Springfield Rotary Club. One charter members still attends our weekly meetings.
In 1982, the club moved to a meeting facility at the old Hunter Motel. Early in 1984 the Club began meeting at the Springfield Golf and Country Club where it still meets for breakfast followed by a topical program every Wednesday morning (excluding holidays) from 7:30 to 8:30 A.M. on the second floor. The Springfield Golf and Country Club is located on Old Keene Mill Road just east of the intersection of Old Keene Mill Road and Rolling Road. The NXT Satellite Club meets the first and third Tuesdays of the month at the Springfield Hilton from 6:30 to 7:30 P.M.
