Networking: A founding principle of Rotary is to meet periodically to enjoy camaraderie and enlarge one’s circle of business and professional acquaintances. Our weekly luncheons bring together a diverse audience, including executives, managers, political leaders, professionals, retirees, and dedicated volunteers. This unique blend of individuals creates a environment to engage in high-level networking, exchange insights, and foster connections with a wide range of experienced and passionate individuals, all while enjoying delicious food and thought-provoking discussions.  


International Connections: One of Rotary’s highest objectives is to build goodwill and peace throughout the world. With more than 46,000 clubs in over 220 countries & geographical areas, Rotarians gain an understanding of humanitarian issues through international service projects, exchange programs and travel fellowships. 

Ethical Leadership: Encouraging high ethical standards in one’s profession and respect for all worthy vocations has been a hallmark of Rotary from its earliest days. In their business and professional lives, Rotarians abide by The Four-Way Test.   Rotary also places high importance on inclusivity by honoring and acknowledging the diverse and invaluable contributions of individuals from all backgrounds, regardless of their age, ethnicity, race, abilities, religion, socioeconomic status, cultural heritage, gender, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

Community Engagement: As a Rotarian, you have the opportunity to work on projects that directly benefit your local community, addressing issues such as healthcare, education, poverty, and the environment.  Weekly Rotary club programs keep members informed about what is taking place in the community, nation, and world and motivated to make a difference.

Youth Programs: Our rotary club supports youth scholarships and programs like Interact, Rotaract, LEAD, and RYLA, providing opportunities for young people to develop leadership skills and engage in service.  Rotary also sponsors some of the world’s largest youth and educational exchanges.

Fellowship: Rotary was founded on fellowship, an ideal that remains a major attraction of membership today. Club members enjoy the camaraderie with like-minded professionals, and regular meetings and events build camaraderie among members, leading to lasting friendships.  

Philanthropy: Being part of Rotary allows you to be involved in philanthropic efforts that have a real and lasting impact on the world.

Travel Opportunities: Rotarians often have the chance to participate in international service projects, attend Rotary conventions, and exchange visits with Rotarians in other countries.

Community Recognition: Membership in Rotary often leads to recognition and respect in the local community for your dedication to service.
