Festus-Crystal City Rotary Club turns 76

(Festus, Crystal City) The Festus-Crystal City Rotary Club reached a milestone in 2020, but because of the pandemic, there wasn’t much attention or a celebration for it. The club reached its 75th anniversary of existence. Current Rotarian Scott Harness says the club first came to be in 1945.

Herculaneum resident Elmo Blum has been a member since 1962. He’s seen many changes within the organization including a very positive move in the 1980s.

The Festus-Crystal City Rotary Club will celebrate its 76th Anniversary at its annual installation dinner on Tuesday, June 29th at Oak Valley Golf Club and Resort in Pevely.
