WHAT IS ROTARY?
Rotary brings together community leaders from all continents, cultures, and occupations to share their ideas for making the world a better place. By combining their distinct skills and expertise, Rotary members are tackling some of the world's most pressing problems – from local initiatives like feeding the hungry to global efforts like eradicating polio.
Rotary is a community of friends who are committed to creating positive change in the world. Find out how joining your local club can enrich your life and improve the lives of people living in your neighborhood and across the globe.
It all begins at the weekly club meeting, where members catch up with friends, hear what's happening in their community, and organize club activities and service projects. It's a fun way to connect with the people in your community who share your passion for doing good.
We invite you to find out more of what our club does by searching the many links on this site, visiting one of our weekly meetings or contacting any of our members.
