Club History

The Rotary Club of Stone Mountain was chartered on May 12, 1965 with the charter presentation at a meeting held at the Plantation Restaurant on Memorial Drive in Stone Mountain on June 18, 1965.

On that date, there were 29 members in the club. The official meeting day and time was set at Tuesday, 12:15; we still meet at that day and time. The club was originally known as the Rotary Club of East DeKalb and was sponsored by the Rotary Club of Decatur.

The East DeKalb name was changed to the Rotary Club of Stone Mountain on June 11, 1981. Today the Rotary Club of Stone Mountain is known as the Rotary Club of Governors. We have more living District Governors from our club than any other club in Rotary District 6900 which covers one third of the state of Georgia. We also hold the distinction of having back to back District Governors from our club. In addition, several members of the Rotary Club of Stone Mountain serve at the District leadership level.
