THE ROTARY CLUB OF TAIPEI was founded on October 9, 1948. On that day, the Club with 28 founding members, received its charter from Rotary International. Republic of China (Taiwan) past President C. K. YEN, who remained a member for over 40 years, was elected as Charter President.

It was just three years after the end of World War II. The formation of the Club was of very special significance, since Rotary is an international organization where freedom, justice, truth and world fellowship are inherent in its goals. It was also only one year before the seat of government of the Republic of China was moved to Taipei upon the withdrawal of the Nationalist government in mainland China to Taiwan.

Even in its first year, our Club had the potential of becoming a truly international organization. Of the 28 charter members, 22 were Chinese and 6 were foreigners, mostly Americans. Today our Club generally has members of over 20 nationalities.

 

The First Decade: 1948-1958

The Rotary years 1948-49 through 1958-59 were years of “firsts.” Dr. Ton So-Kim, our Club’s candidate, was awarded the first (in Taiwan) Rotary Foundation Fellowship in RY1949-50. In December 1950 our Club held its first Charity Ball at Kwang Fu Hall in Taipei. TYPHOON made its first appearance in July 1951, with Rotarian ET as its first editor. The intercollegiate English oratorical contest was started in RY 1956-57.

A delegation of Taipei Rotarians attended the Inter-City Forum of Rotary clubs of Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau in Hong Kong in March 1952, and in April 1953 we sent its first two delegates to attend the Rotary International Convention in Seattle.

Ten other Rotary clubs were formed in Taiwan during our Club’s first ten years. With our Club as sponsor, the Rotary Clubs of Keelung and Tainan were chartered in November 1953, and the Rotary Club of Kaohsiung in the same Rotary Year. These were followed by the Rotary Clubs of Hsinchu, Pingtung, Chiayi, Taipei West, Ilan and Taichung, all chartered in RY 1954-55, and the Rotary Club of Taipei North chartered in March 1959.

In the early days, the main emphasis of our club was on assisting orphanages and underprivileged children amid the difficult economic circumstances in those days. In October 1951, our club helped install a tap water system at the Peitou Orphanage and an enclosing wall for the Ai Ai Liau Orphanage. A free evening school for underprivileged children was opened at the Wanhua YMCA in June 1954. The I Kiang Children’s Garden, equipped by our Club, opened in June 1956. Our club continues to support the underprivileged in Taiwan, as well as disaster victims, the aged and the handicapped.

Our Club also gave provisions to the crew of the junk “Free China” that sailed across the Pacific in March 1955, and established an emergency fund at the Taiwan University Hospital in January 1957.

Other important activities of Our Club during its first ten years included a Courtesy Contest held in January 1950, a “one-price movement” started in February 1957 (which called on stores to publicly list prices for goods), the dedication of 3 Rotary cabins at the YMCA Fu Lung Camp in August 1957, and a “Rotacom” basketball tournament held at the International House in June 1958.

Two RI Presidents visited Taiwan in that period, namely A. Z. Baker in December 1955 and Clifford A. Randall, with his wife, in November 1958. Rotary International celebrated its Golden Anniversary in February 1955. Republic of China President Chiang Kai-shek sent his greetings.

 

The Years 1959-2000

RY 1959-60 saw the birth of District 345, when in June 1960 the Rotary Clubs of Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau were given District status. In April of the same year, the Chinese Rotarian Quarterly magazine made its first appearance. In May 1961, the first District Conference was held in Taipei; and the Chinese Rotarian Quarterly was later recognized by Rotary International as the official regional publication of District 345.

The years that followed, particularly the ten years beginning in RY 1968-69, were years of fast growth and expansion, not only for our Club but for the Rotary movement all over the country and in District 345. Our growth consisted not only in the increase in the number of our members, but also in the international composition of our Club’s membership and by the multiplication of our activities and the increase in amounts of funds that we were able to donate to charity. We were able to expand our services to both our Club and the community at large, and increase our participation in District and International Conventions.

We continuously increased our contributions to the Rotary Foundation, as well as the number of Paul Harris Fellows among our members and some of their spouses. We continued aiding the orphanages and underprivileged children who were among the first beneficiaries of our charity work. Moreover, we expanded these activities to also include the aged, the handicapped, and other needy persons.

Our Rotary spouses very ably assisted the aged for many years. In those early years, the Women’s Community Service Committee expanded its projects to assist the handicapped and orphans. Aside from the traditional Christmas or New Year Parties that we held for underprivileged and crippled children, we also sponsored in 1981-82 a garden party for child patients at Cheng Hsin Medical & Rehabilitation Center.

Our major community service projects, supported by contributions received during our annual charity drive, were major projects for the community. In RY 1980-81, we supported the Taipei Life Line, and in RY 1981-82, the Children’s Cardiac Foundation. With funds of almost NT$2 million from the 1982 Charity Ball, we supported two major projects in RY 1982-83; the Rota-car Project administered by the Salvation Army, and the Chen Kuang Activity Center (a joint project with the Rotary Club of Taipei Ta-an). The funds collected in the 1983 charity drive were used to help a home for single mothers and a home for children with mental disabilities.

In cooperation with other Rotary Clubs in Taipei, and as our contribution to the 3-H program, we donated US$50,000 to build water tanks for refugees in Thailand in RY 1980-81. In RY 1981-82, in line with the year’s theme of “World Understanding and Peace Through Rotary”, we prepared slides depicting Rotary in the Republic of China and the activities of our club for distribution to clubs in other countries. We also visited and donated to the community service projects of our sister clubs in the Philippines.

We started a project for promoting high ethical standards in RY 1981-82, and this was continued in RY 1982-83 as a major Vocational Service Project. As part of this project, we distributed large posters and desk cards of the Four Way Test to our fellow Rotarians at the 23rd District 345 Conference in Taipei and also at the 1983 RI Convention in Toronto. We also sponsored projects to promote good employer-employee relations and to help young people in choosing a career. In April 1984, we recognized 3 outstanding key employees selected from our members’ companies.

In 1982-83, our Club signed sister club agreements with the Rotary Club of Chicago and the Rotary Club of Westmount.
In the 1980s we also held a Christmas Party for 100 orphans at the Ritz Hotel Chairman, organized by Rotarian Mike and his Community Service Committee.

The major community service projects for 1984-85 saw our club giving NT$300,000 to the Taipei Talking Library for the Blind and NT$200,000 to the Ai Ai Home for the aged.

The major community project for 1985-86 was of equal importance: a van was purchased for the Sunlight Culture and Education Foundation and NT$300,000 was given to the Taiwan Scoliosis Foundation.

The first prize in the 1985 annual Inter-Collegiate English Oratorical Contest for Universities was a month in London.

The Women’s Community Service Committee continued their visits to the Little Sister Home for the Aged in Taiwan. They also helped entertain a visiting group from the Rotary Club of Koshigaya South at our weekly meeting on April 18, 1985.

Our International Service Committee under Chairman Eugene continued their fine work. Our excellent brochure was sent to all hotels, embassies, trade offices and banks in Taipei. This was done so that visiting Rotarians would be aware of the time and place of our meetings.

International students were given a buffet and the gift of phoning their moms on Mother’s Day in 1985.

We supported a major healthcare project of the Rotary Club of Manila by donating surgical instruments from the Republic of China.

Our Paul Harris Fellows in 1985 numbered 50. We were well-represented the RI Convention in June 1985 in Kansas City by Secretary Bob and Rtn. Farmer.

RY 1986-87 was a very productive year for our club as PP Gary C. K. Huang served as Governor of District 345 that year. With his inspiration, the club added 26 Paul Harris Fellows and initiated an island wide scoliosis screening project with the support of neighboring Districts 346 and 347. About 150 1st grade girl students of the Wesley Girls Middle School were the 1st group who received the screening with the help of scoliosis registered nurse Ms. Ruth Shannon and Rotary Anns. The Women’s Community Service Committee continued visiting the elderly at Pa-Li. They also visited approximately 10 orphanages or homes. The International Service Committee hosted an exchange student Ms. Angelique Webber from South Africa and prepared Ms. Sue Wun for her trip to that nation in the next year under the youth exchange program. In addition, the club hosted the RI Zone Four Institute on December 12-14, 1986 in Taipei, with about 150 RI Officers in Asia Zone Four attending. On March 19-20, 1987, the club also hosted the 27th District Conference of District 345 in Taipei, with over 1,300 Rotarians and guests participating.

In RY 1987-88, our club concentrated on the scoliosis screening training sessions. We sponsored 2 sessions: one in Hualien and one in Taipei. We thanked Rtn. Jimlee, who translated the slides provided by the Rotary Club of Novi, Michigan for use at the sessions. Chinese letters, brochures and posters were distributed to the session participants. Other community service projects included donating NT$300,000 to the ROC Foundation of Autistic Children and Adults in Taiwan and providing 26 mattresses to St. Anne’s Home. We also sponsored a blood drive in cooperation with the Taipei Hilton Hotel, Ritz Hotel and Rebar Hotel, with over 700 people participating. The Women’s Community Service Committee donated daily necessities to orphanages and visited the Little Sisters Home for the Aged twice.
For membership growth efforts, the Club sent letters introducing Rotary to almost every new arrival. Sixteen Rotarians maintained their 100 percent attendance record. Under Vocational Service, the Club gave 3 consecutive vocation talks on April 27-29, 1988, for graduating students of the Chinese Culture University and organized a vocational tour for Rotarians and Rotary Anns to visit the Multi-Tech Industrial Park.
RY 1987-88 was the Polio-Plus year. The Club donated US$7,000 to support the Polio-Plus Campaign. Our International Service Committee sent Ms. Sue Wun to South Africa and hosted another youth exchange, Ms. Lisa Blankley. We again sponsored a Christmas Disco Party for 125 foreign students in Taipei at the Taipei Hilton.

RY 1988-89 was also a busy year. Our Vocational Service Committee under the Chairmanship of Rtn. Irving expanded the Career Conference in several colleges to enhance the occupational information for youth. The contests of talks were compiled into booklets to be distributed among different colleges. The Community Service Committee under the chairman ship of Rtn. Bearing had several accomplishments.
