History of The Rotary Club of Belize

 
Belize Rotary ClubThe Rotary Club of Belize was chartered on 7th July 1957. Eleven founding members were inducted on that date by District Governor Jimmy Butler of Panama, and our sponsoring club was the Rotary Club of San Pedro Sula, Honduras. Today, having completed 50 years of service, we have a diverse, energetic membership of almost 60 members.

The Rotary Clubs in Belize are part of Rotary District 4250, comprising Belize, Honduras and Guatemala. Our club is the oldest club in Belize, but not the only one. The Rotary Clubs of Belize Sunrise, Belmopan, Corozal, Dangriga, Orange Walk, Placencia, and San Ignacio are the other seven clubs distributed throughout the country. All eight clubs take pride in serving their communities and their country through club projects and vocational commitments by their individual members. The Rotary Club of Belize has the honour of having had two of its members serve as District Governor: John Searle (1999-2000) and Salvador “Junior” Espat (2004-2005, Rotary International’s Centennial Year). Our third Belizean District Governor Nominee (2009-2010), Dr. Marcelo Coyi, is also a member of our club.
