Welcome to the Rotary Club of Perth, Scotland, Website. This site is published to keep our members and friends up to date with what is happening in our club and to offer information about our activities, our charitable involvements, and our community service projects. This year, 2017, is a particularly important year in the history of the Club which was formed in 1917, as we are celebrating our Centenary.
So what has been planned for this year of celebration:
Perth & Kinross Council are to host a Civic Reception at the new City Chambers at 2 High street, Perth on 14th February
A Centenary Casino Night at the Royal George Hotel, Perth, on Friday 24th March
Centenary Charity Golf Day at King James V1 Golf Club on Wednesday 10th May

The Club has sired three daughter Clubs during its history, Dundee, Perth St. Johns, and Perth Kinnoull, which was chartered in 1992 during the year of our Club's 75th Charter celebrations.
Whilst the first meeting of the Club was held in The Grand Temperance Hotel, Kinnoull Street, Perth on March 26th 1917, the Club was formally chartered on 12th October 1917, and met in the Salutation Hotel, Perth for the first 9 years before moving to the Royal George Hotel, Perth for 3 years, and then on to The Station Hotel, Perth in 1929, before moving to our present home at McDiarmid Park, Perth in 2008. Our 100 Years of Service to the community of Perth and beyond will be celebrated with our Centenary Charter Dinner on Saturday 4th November in the Salutation Hotel, Perth.
All visiting Rotarians to Perth can be assured of a warm welcome at McDiarmid Park, PH1 2SJ, on Thursdays at 12:30 for 1pm.
