THE ROTARY CLUB OF LYNCHBURG
The Rotary Club of Lynchburg, Virginia was organized on 3 February 1917 and
admitted to Rotary International on 1 March 1917. Rotary International is a worldwide
organization of business and professional leaders that provides humanitarian service,
encourages high ethical standards in all vocations, and helps build goodwill and peace in
the world. The Rotary Club of Lynchburg, No. 280, has participated in local and
international projects including a bone marrow donor program, a world-wide polio
eradication project, and a Sister City program. Fund-raising activities include Café Bon
Ami, held during the local arts festival, and “Living Large with Leprechauns” held on St.
Patrick’s Day.
Of all of the projects the Rotary Club of Lynchburg has undertaken since it was
chartered in 1917, perhaps the most unique was the care, adoption, and education of the
seven orphan children of the Henry Family of Bedford County. After moving the family
to Lynchburg, the children attended Lynchburg schools, were befriended by “Rotary
Dads” and their wives, and made friends with many children. With the benefits of a trust
fund established at a local bank, Rotarians decided after six years it was best to send the
children to “schools that best suited their interests and abilities.” Rotary paid tuition and
room expenses and the students worked to earn their board. During the years when the
Henrys were in college, the homes of several Rotarians were always open to them at
holiday times. On July 16, 1940, a report stated that all seven of the Henry children had
completed their education and that the Club's obligation had been fulfilled. The Henry
Family Trust Fund was combined with the regular Student Loan Fund.
