The last year we remained in old District 165 was 1948-49, when Sidney Smith of Gainesville gave Georgia a most progressive administration. It was during “Sid’s” year that Georgia saw the dividing of the ways, when two districts were set up in Georgia - west and east. Districts 240 and 241 respectively.

Up until now the history of our district was the history of Rotary in Georgia. From this time on we take leave of the other Georgia clubs with whom we had been so closely associated and who with us had made Rotary in Georgia. Now we launch our separate history.
