On June 2, 1993, a group of local business owners and professionals met at Wendell Coffee Golf Center in Tyrone, Georgia for the purpose of exploring interest in forming a local Rotary Club. Members of the Peachtree City Rotary Club and the South Fulton Rotary Club provided the information necessary for understanding the commitment and what would be involved in forming a club. From this small group of individuals, the Rotary Club of Tyrone was founded and on January 6, 1994 it was chartered. In February 2001, our club's name was changed to Fayette Daybreak Rotary Club. In January 2023 we transformed again by changing meeting time and location, and changing our name to The Rotary Club of Tyrone.
We have lunch meetings at 12:00 noon the first and third week of the month, a service project the second week, and a Board meeting the fourth week. We meet at Way of Life Church in Tyrone.
We strive to make a difference in Tyrone and across Fayette County through supporting local non-profits and other groups. These include the Tyrone Library and its literacy and GED programs; Royal Animal Rescue, SAAG, Armed Forces Mission, Fayette Samaritans, Healing Bridge Clinic, Careing Paws, Fayette Humane Society, Coco's Cupboard, Promise Place, The Real Life Center, Midwest Food Bank, and others. Each year we sponsor fundraising events including our signature event - Paws for a Purpose Charity Dog Walk. We also recognize the leaders of our community - teachers, law enforcement, and municipal workers - with appreciation breakfasts throughout the year. And we seek to help people around the world through supporting the efforts of Rotary International and programs like Polio Plus and CART (Coins for Alzheimers Research Trust Fund).
Each spring, the Rotary clubs of District 6900 gather for a conference. In the past, our club has been given great honors at this event including Presidential Citations, awards for Club Service, Vocational Service, and Community Service, as well as Best New Project, Best Bulletin and Best All-Around Club.
Just as our members are committed to our community and to world understanding, we are committed to each other as Rotarians. Come and join us in our fun, our fellowship, and our service!
