Welcome to Rotary Club of Raffles City

Rotary Club Raffles City (RCRC), in retrospect was a divinely ordained name. Back in 1980 when RCRC was formed there was no Raffles City complex, which has now become a landmark. Weekly meetings were initially held in Raffles Hotel. Now RC Raffles City meets at Singapore Cricket Club every Tuesday, 12.45pm.

History & Milestones

The name Rotary Club of Raffles City was perhaps a divinely ordained one for in 1980, there was no Raffles City, the vibrant shopping complex landmark that we know today.

It was established upon the initiative of PP Low Siew Joon and 32 Charter members. Sponsored by RC Singapore under President Philbert Chin, Rotary Club of Raffles City (RCRC) was admitted into Rotary lnternational (RI) on 13 August 1980 and registered as a society on 20 August 1980. It was a memorable year as 1980 also marked the Platinum

Anniversary of Rotary lnternational and the Golden Anniversary of Singapore's first Rotary Club, RC Singapore. At that time, there were already five Rotary Clubs in town and RCRC was the sixth.

In the early days, weekly meetings were held at the Raffles Hotel, then at Westin Stamford, Marina Mandarin Hotel and now at The Cricket Club.
