N. Meck Rotary leaving Peninsula Club for Harvey’s starting July 1

Service above self: Greg Holsinger, Tom Dutton, Steve Melton

June 19. A long-standing tradition in Cornelius is coming to an end: After 25 years the North Mecklenburg Rotary Club will no longer hold their Wednesday lunch meetings at The Peninsula Club.

There was apparently a proposed price increase that club leadership felt was too steep for “business owners [who] have suffered greatly during this pandemic financially.”


The club will start a new tradition July 1 at Harvey’s in Cornelius, 19906 N Cove Road A. The restaurant will close to the public Wednesdays at lunch so that the club can hold its meetings.

The club, which has a long and deep history of community service, met for the first time on Oct. 11, 1988. The first community service project completed by the club was to raise $500 for a local child in need of hearing aids. More info: http://www.northmeckrotary.org/index.php
