Our 35 members form one of 32,000 clubs around the world in 262 countries, whose motto is Service Above Self. Rotary was founded in 1905, our club was chartered in 1984, and we celebrated our 25th anniversary in February 2009.
Our emphasis is community service which we demonstrate through our annual “Dollars for Scholars” scholarship fundraiser to help high school seniors in their educational pursuits. We sponsor the “Shots for Tots” immunization program and support other community programs such as the Oasis Soup Kitchen.
Internationally, we host an international Rotary exchange student and send a student to another country each year through Rotary International Youth Exchange Program. We support Polio Plus which is Rotary’s program to eradicate polio worldwide. To date, Rotary Club members have contributed more than $850 million.
If you are curious about why we do what we do, please contact us. You too can experience the rewards of service above self, and join the more than 1.2 million Rotarians around the world who believe that when you “Engage Rotary” you “Change Lives”.
Rotary Club meets every Tuesday at noon at Meadow Lakes Golf Course.
