History

Rotary Club of Garden City History in Brief:

In 1985, PP Tan Leong Teck, then president of Rotary Club of Singapore East, proposed a bilingual club to be
formed in Singapore to encourage Mandarin-speaking Singaporeans to join Rotary and participate in Rotary service activities.

Early in June 1986, the Board of Directors of Rotary Club of Singapore East approved a club extension
programme to sponsor the proposed bilingual club. When Rtn Er John SY Tan became president of the club in 1986, he announced the appointment of a club extension committee with PP Tan Leong Teck as chair.

The club extension committee met fortnightly to plan the formation of the new club. A provisional
club came into being on 3 January 1987 with Rtn Dr Melvin Wong as charter president. Rotary Club of
Garden City was admitted to membership of Rotary International as Club #24693 on 2 June 1987.

On 14 August 1987, the Rotary Club of Garden City was registered in Singapore under the Societies
Act and a notice concerning this was published in the Government Gazette. Rotary Club of Garden City
formally received its charter certificate from Rotary International on 24 December 1987 at its Charter
Night dinner held at Neptune Theatre Restaurant.
