What is Gyro International

_______________________________________

Gyro is, simply stated, a Friendship Club

In 1912, the three founders, college chums, wanted to perpetuate the undeniable bond of camaraderie experienced through their brotherhood.
Their plan was:

1) the promulgation of friendship among men of all states, provinces, and nations;

2) cementing of relationships and establishment of cooperation between all Gyro Clubs wherever situated, and

3) the preservation and extension of principles and ideals of the organization.

Gyro was to provide an atmosphere wherein men of character would have the opportunity to nuture friendships and exchange ideas in an open environment. That Gyro would become the “organization of choice” in an era of decreasing leisure time. The organization would welcome men of character from all walks of life, and that Gyro would seek quality members as an improvement over raw numbers.

Gyro grew rapidly, and although experiencing swings in membership totals, today it is composed of 85 clubs with 2,200+ members across North America — from the coast of California to the shores of Prince Edward Island, and from the beaches in Florida to the forests of British Columbia.

Benefit of being a Member

______________________________________

There have been studies that show how being a part of a community of friends is beneficial to the long term health, longevity and happiness of an individual.

Men tend to have work lives and home lives but seldom give themselves the benefit of friendship and social interaction within a men’s group. As they age, families grow up and leave and friends move. Gyro is an excellent answer as friendships within a “social neighbourhood” offer a continuous source of social stimulation.

Below is a link that may help you with deciding if you should be a Gyro member… according to psychiatrist Robert Waldinger, the director of 75-year-old study on adult development, Waldinger has unprecedented access to data on true happiness and satisfaction. In this talk, he shares three important lessons learned from the study as well as some practical, old-as-the-hills wisdom on how to build a fulfilling, long life.
