According to the “Tercentenary Pictorial and History of the Lower Naugatuck Valley” …. “The Derby-Shelton Rotary Club came into existence with appropriate institutional ceremonies, including a banquet, at the Hotel Clark, Derby, on the night of May 17, 1927, thus becoming club member 2,613 of Rotary International. The eight years of existence have been successful from the club standpoint. Much has been accomplished and the club has taken its place among the other organizations in the associated cities which are devoted to service work of various kinds.”
