The Green Cove Springs Rotary Club dates back to August 17, 1926 and is the oldest Clay County Rotary Club. The club traditionally has been a mix of residents of Penney Retirement Community and long-time Clay County residents. In recent years, membership has expanded to include some newer residents of the community.
Among the many activities of the club is the annual Bike Ride, which includes both a 25-mile ride and one that is 65 miles long through safe and rural roadways throughout picturesque Clay County. Proceeds from the event, which celebrates its 10th year in 2018, benefit the local charities supported by the club.
