The Burton Rotary Club had its beginning through the interest of past District Governor, Jack Hamady, a member of the Flint Rotary Club. Businessmen in the Burton area were contacted in early 1979 regarding their interest in the new club. The first meeting place was Walli's East. The second was the El Rancho Restaurant, both in Burton. We were a provisional club only for a short time. We received our charter at a special Charter Presentation and dinner held at the El Rancho. Currently, the club meets every Thursday at the IMA Brookwood Golf Course Clubhouse.
