The Rotary Club of Gros Islet received its' Charter on March 5th 1993.
The Charter President of the Club was Rotarian Lisle Chase who served as president of the Rotary Club of Saint Lucia in the year 1988/1989 before requesting that club to sponsor a new Rotary Club in the North of the island, a club that would welcome both men and women.  The Club was Chartered with twenty eight business and professional men and women and has gone on to become a powerhouse in community service over the years.
The year 1994/1995, saw the launch of the Annual Charity Golf Tournament which has continued and had been the primary fund raising event for the Club.
In that same year, the Club embarked on the ambitious project of building a new belfry at the Gros Islet Catholic Church as the existing belfry was in danger of collapse.  The bells had and continue to have huge significance in the community as they ring out not only good tidings, but they are also an essential alarm system when danger approaches, eg. hurricanes.
