Chartered on Aug. 6, 1964, Space Center Rotary has an outstanding community service history due to its diversified members, all with a passion for

“Service Above Self.” Not only this, but the club shares a national heritage in that it grew alongside the manned space program at NASA’s Johnson Space Center.

The bond between the club and the Johnson Space Center and the friendship that has developed is one of the club’s enduring values along with a rich heritage.

With honor, the club carries the name “Space Center,” and its banner reflects the manned space program. Many of the former and current members were pioneers in the manned space program, and several of the earlier astronauts were honorary members of the club.
