About Our Club


The Rotary Club of Lockport, NY was chartered on May 1, 1919, making it the oldest service organization in Lockport. Charles A. Upson was elected as the club's first president, and George C. Lewis as secretary. The club began with 25 charter members, and within two years had grown to 70 members. 


Rotary's mission has always been to fulfill community needs and advance world peace and understanding.  Today this is accomplished through programs and projects to support health care, youth development, sustainable communities, and cultural exchange at the local, regional and international levels.
