Castle Hill Rotary Club - History








Brief History of the Castle Hill's Club



After an informal meeting called by the District Governor's Special representative, Stan Kelly, at "Durham Park", Castle Hill, in November 1964, it was decided to hold an inaugural meeting of the Provisional Rotary Club of Baulkham Hills on February 4th, 1965. 29 members of the Provisional Club applied to RI for their charter, which was granted on 18th March, 1965."


From Review of Activities since Formation by Charter President, Gerald Engel
Originally the Rotary Club of Baulkham Hills, the Club was sponsored by the Rotary Club of Parramatta. In 1973 the Rotary Club of Baulkham Hills ceased officially to exist and the Rotary Club of Castle Hill took its place. This was, however, a change in name only. Nothing else had changed. The change foreshadowed the creation of a new club in the southern part of our area and later a new Rotary Club of Baulkham Hills was chartered by us.

 In 1975 we chartered a new Rotary Club of Baulkham Hills who then chartered the Rotary Club of Winston Hills in 1988. Also in that year we chartered the Rotary Club of Kellyville who then chartered Norwest Sunrise in 2001. 1993 saw the Rotary Club of Glenhaven chartered, again by Castle Hill.

 In 2002 we chartered another club as part of Rotary International's venture to bring in a model club and The Hills Rotary Club was formed.
