The Falmouth Rotary Club was founded in 1927, merely 22 years after the first Rotary Meeting in Chicago. As a result, it is one of the oldest continuing Rotary Clubs in the world. As a member of Rotary International District 7950, Falmouth Rotary participates in local, regional and international service projects. Among its local service projects, Falmouth Rotary constructed a helicopter landing facility at Falmouth Hospital, has contributed park benches for the town parks, built a pavillion at Goodwill Park, renovated emerald house and constructed added parking at Spohr Gardens. Falmouth Rotary is most noted, however, for its scholarship program for which any Falmouth student is eligible to help pay for their higher education. Worldwide, Falmouth Rotary participates in the effort to eradicate polio and supports Rotary district projects throughout the world.
