GYRO DISTRICT III
GYRO....what is it?
But friendship in its finest and most comprehensive
articulation, is the foundation underpinning the whole.
Gyro is many things:
- an international association,
- a local group or
- an individual associated with these groups.
Gyro was founded to promote understanding through friendship and the enjoyment of these
associations between like-minded men throughout all of North America.
There are three simple, yet all-inclusive objectives:
The task of determining how to meet these objectives is left to the individual clubs, a
practice that has proved most successful.
- To promote friendship among men of all provinces, states and nations.
- To cement relationships between Gyro Clubs everywhere.
- To preserve and extend Gyro's founding principles and ideals.
Gyro began in Cleveland, Ohio in April of 1912 and the first Gyro Club in Canada was chartered
in Toronto on April 14, 1919.
The history of each club is described within its own section of this web site.
North America is divided into 11 districts.
District 3 is comprised of clubs from:
- The state of New York, USA
- The province of Ontario, Canada
- Port Colborne
- St. Catharines
- Etobians (Etobicoke)
Every year we get together at a district convention.
The purpose of this convention
is to renew old friendships, make new friends and have fun.
Each year some members from
clubs all over North America meet for a three day International Convention.
