Chartered January 15, 1921
13th Club in Gyro International

Gyro exists throughout North America and the sole purpose of this organization is to promote “Friendship”.  Gyro came into being in 1912 when three college friends decided that their friendship, which had crystallized through their college years was worthy of perpetuation.  Gyro carries with it no label of race, creed, and political or other club affiliation.  While many Gyro clubs do support and contribute to community projects, the primary purpose of coming together as Gyros is for “friendship and fun”.  The Davenport club's only purpose is for “friendship and fun”.

The Gyro Club of Davenport is part of Gyro District II that consists of seven Clubs located in Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin.  The clubs are Chicago, Clinton, Davenport, Des Moines, Dixon, Madison and Milwaukee.  Every year Gyros and Gyrettes get together for a Convention with the other clubs in the District, hosted by a club in the District on a rotating basis.  District II holds a one-day Interim meeting in the spring at a location determined by the sitting Governor.  The District also holds a golf outing in June, usually at Dixon, Illinois.

Gyro International, through participation by representatives from each of the Districts, together with the International Executive, provides a link tying together all Gyros.  The organization exists for the purpose of nourishing and continuing the ideals and objectives of Gyro.

If you have not heard of Gyro before, you are welcome to contact us for more information about our club or the nearest club in your area.  We welcome all men of good character to join us for a unique friendship experience.
