At Tuesday's Fulton City Council meeting, a proclamation was presented to the Fulton Rotary Club and several resolutions were discussed.
Mayor Lowe Cannell presented the proclamation to president Allen Huggins.
It recognizes Rotary Club's 100th anniversary. The club was chartered on March 15, 1923, and was founded by 22 men.
"Now therefore, we the Mayor and council of the City of Fulton, extend 100 birthday greetings to the Rotary Club of Fulton, Missouri, and express our hope for the continued interplay of the city and the club as it begins its second 100 years with the model service above self," Cannell said.
