How and Why to join Rotary

Rotary was founded in 1905 in Chicago.  The organization has grown to over 30,000 Rotary clubs in 160 countries with about 1.2 million members.  Rotary International's major project since 1985 has been the global eradication of polio.

The money raised by our club supports a wide variety of local community groups and projects.  The club also supports education, literacy, health and water projects overseas.  Through a committee structure, the club has developed careful ways to select and evaluate worthwhile projects.  Many members are active in local causes and some travel overseas on "sweat equity" projects. 

How to Join

Membership is open to people who have a leadership position in a recognized business or profession or who have retired from such a position.  Membership in Rotary is by invitation, so anyone interested in joining should speak to a Rotarian about membership, its obligations, and the opportunities for service.
