Wine spritzer days in Győr

The cultural event Wine spritzer days in Győr was initiated, launched and organised by Rotary Club Győr. Our club and this popular event is united just like the sparkling water becomes one with wine in a wine spritzer. The Wine spritzer days are part of Győr Summer and they include laying a wreath at the statue of Ányos Jedlik on Széchenyi Square as well as serving wine spritzer. The goal of this charity event is to sponsor the pronunciation competition of Kazinczy Ferenc High School called Nice Hungarian Speech.

Wine spitzer days are to be held between September 24th and October 1th 2010 in Győr on the renovated Széchenyi Square.


Charity concert

Rotary Club Győr Foundation organizes a charity pop concert in November 2010. In the past few years the concert of the band Republic held in University Sports Hall of Győr attracted several thousand people. Meanwhile we provided free tickets for 100 large families, handicapped people and for 900 students singing in the choir.

The goal of the event was to contribute to the costs of cross-border children heart surgery as a part of Rotary Gift of Life program as well as supporting the Rotary student exchange program.

At the end of the meeting it was announced that the European High Representative will apply for the admission to the international organisation in the Chicago centre.

A member loses his/her membership if his/her are not present at minimum 60 percent of the meetings and their absence is not approved by the leadership.

The following months were characterised by administration and finally the club was officially acknowledged on 29 July 1932. No documents are available about the charter ceremony.

The Presidents of Győr Rotary Club from the foundation until 1938:

1932-34 Dr László Nyáry founding president
1934/35 Lajos Jausz
1935/37 Rezso Gálos
1937/38 Aurél Kiss

Documents: letters, Freemasons in Hungary.

On December 16th 1937 the commissioner of police reported to the Mayor that the Club did not announce their meetings therefore they were thought to have ceased. The liquidation process started and on November 19th 1938 the President of the Club, Aurél Kiss notary, officially announced that the members had quitted, a general assembly could not be summoned, so the dissolution could not be stated. This fact was then reported to Dr Zoltán Koós, the Governor of Hungarian Rotary Clubs. Finally on May 31th 1939 the Mayor announced the termination of the Club. The liquidation of the assets ended on September 26th 1939.


The re-chartering of Rotary Club was initiated in 1992 by Dr Rudolf Kőszegi, member of Rotary Schönbrunn (Austria/Vienna) and started by Dr József Horváth, Pál Lackner, Henrik Grábics and Dr Géza Király. The re-chartering dates back to 1992, while the official charter ceremony was held on July 10th 1993 in Hotel Rába.

Since its re-chartering Rotary Club Győr has organised charity events not only in Győr but in its neighborhood as well. Additionally the Club pays attention to the development of acquaintances over the state borders and serving the Hungarian minority in the Carpathian Basin. Our Club has sent donations to Transylvania, Csángó regions, Subcarpathia and Felvidék.

The aim of the Club has always been to maintain a living relationship with its surroundings. The guests invited by us include several members of the parliament and local governments, leaders of factories, mayors, leaders of civil organisations.

RC Győr similarly to all Hungarian Rotary Clubs belonged to the 1910 district with its centre in Vienna. However on the international charter ceremony of June 29th and 30th 2007 in Budapest the independent Hungarian district was formed which was given the number of 1911 within the International Rotary. Imre Kovács was elected the first governor of the Hungarian district.

The Hungarian Rotary joined the Rotarian family with its 40 clubs and 1100 members.

The first Rotary Club in Győr was founded in 1932 and operated until 1938. The present club was formed in 1991 and has been a full member of Rotary International since October 7th 1992.

Our club is best represented by the goals formulated in the statutes of our club:

Maintaining friendships and thus providing an opportunity to help.

Adopting high ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to serve society.

Applying the ideal of service and help in each Rotarian's personal, business and community life.

The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

The mission of our Rotary Club is to serve the community above self.

We feel that our efforts are substantiated by the achievements of the last 15 years. Rotary Club is well-known in our town and is considered one of the most active civil organisations.

Therefore we kindly recommend our Club and its website to those interested.
