The Levelland Rotary Club was chartered by Rotary International on March 28, 1928.  In the charter application, dated March 10, 1928, the following statement was written by Neil H. Wright, of Lubbock, Texas in regards to Levelland.

 

      "LEVELLAND IS A GROWING WESTERN TOWN AND BIDS FAIR TO PROGRESS

      CONTINUOUSLY.  THE CITIZENSHIP IS MADE UP OF RATHER UNUSUALLY HIGH

      TYPE BUSINESS AND PROFESSIONAL MEN AND THOSE OF US IN CLOSE CONTACT

      WITH THE ORGANIAZTION WORK IN LEVELLAND FEEL THAT A CLUB THERE WILL BE

      A SUCCESS."

 

Thanks to the citizens of Levelland, this statement is still true, almost 90 years after it was first written.
