About District 6200
At the time that the Rotary Club of Lake Charles was chartered in 1916, the new club was placed in Rotary District 12. The district governor was W. H. Richardson of Austin, Texas.
When the Rotary Club of Baton Rouge came into existence in 1918, the two clubs (Lake Charles and Baton Rouge) were in Rotary District 20. The district governor was Samuel Mason of Shreveport, Louisiana.
The following year the young south Louisiana clubs were incorporated into District 14 until 1922, at which time they became part of District 17. In 1937 they were
included in District 139.
Joel L. Fletcher of Lafayette was the last governor of District 139 in 1948. The following year the clubs became part of District 202 until 1957 when the clubs were included in District 619. In 1958 the territory became District 620. In 1991 the district number was revised to its current designation, District 6200.

Rotary Areas of Focus
The needs spanning Rotary’s seven areas of focus are vast, ranging from lack of access to clean water to the need for immunization that prevent deadly diseases.
Rotary clubs serve communities around the world, each with unique concerns and needs. Rotarians have continually adapted and improved the way they respond to those needs, taking on a broad range of service projects. The most successful and sustainable Rotary service tends to fall within one of the following seven areas:
Rotary projects provide training that fosters understanding and provides communities with the skills to resolve conflicts.
Disease does not prevent itself. We educate and equip communities to stop the spread of life-threatening diseases.
Providing Clean Water
Clean water, sanitation, and hygiene education are basic necessities for a healthy environment and a productive life.
More than 775 million people over the age of 15 are illiterate. We take action to empower educators to inspire learning at all ages.
Saving Mothers & Children
We makes high-quality health care available to vulnerable mothers and children so they can live longer and grow stronger.
Growing Local Economies
Nearly 800 million people live on less than $1.90 a day. We are passionate about providing sustainable solutions to poverty.
Protecting the Environment
We are tackling environmental issues the way they always do: coming up with projects, using their connections to change policy and planning for the future.

Rotary has been working to eradicate polio for more than 30 years. Our goal of ridding the world of this disease is closer than ever.
As a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, we’ve reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent since our first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979.
We’ve helped immunize more than 2.5 billion children in 122 countries. So far, Rotary has contributed more than $1.8 billion toward eradicating the disease worldwide.
