Our club offers fellowship, fun and opportunities for community service locally and globally.  We seek members who will be actively involved and are community-minded.  Our traditions include inviting prominent and interesting speakers to club meetings with the purpose of educating, informing and (sometimes) entertaining members regarding our community.  We also engage in many service projects that serve unmet needs locally and globally, and recognize those who do good, ranging from our police and firefighters to high school seniors graduating with high achievement. Club members have opportunities to network with each other, at weekly club meetings and social events at our member’s businesses, along with an annual golf outing, quarterly "beer tasting" meetings and various socials throughout the year.  Ultimately, through fellowship, fun, community service and networking, we aim to achieve Rotary's goals of "doing good for humanity".  and create long term relationships with other Rotarians by supporting the international exchange of students. 


Rotary is a worldwide organization of more than 1.2 million business, professional and community leaders.  Members of Rotary clubs provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.  There are more than 34,000 Rotary clubs located in more than  212 countries and geographical areas.  Clubs are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds. As signified by the motto Service Above Self, Rotary's main objective is service - in the community, in the workplace and throughout the world.
