The club was initiated by Rtn. Mahen Perera the Charter President in the late 1980’s and was chartered by Rotary international (RI) in December 1989.
We were the last Rotary Club to be chartered by RI in Rotary District 322 which then was Sri Lanka and part of South India.
Now Sri Lanka is a district of its own and is numbered 3220 with 72 Rotary Clubs and nearly 2100 Rotarians.
Rotary International holds an Observer Status in the United Nations.
