Following a dinner late in 1934 at the Club Hotel, Dandenong, when a group of prominent members of the Rotary Club of Melbourne discussed with representative business and professional men of Dandenong the possibility of forming a Rotary Club at Dandenong, the inaugural meeting of the proposed Club was held at the Royal Hotel, Dandenong on 29th March, 1935.

This meeting, attended by many members of the Rotary Club of Melbourne and nineteen charter members, also had as Guest of Honour President Emeritus Paul Harris. the founder of Rotary, giving the Rotary Club of Dandenong the honour of being the only Rotary Club in Australia to have that distinction.
