What we're about
Rotary is a business networking and service membership-based organization. Upon joining, Rotary members attend weekly club meetings, and participate financially by paying yearly dues, lunch fees, and supporting fundraising activities. If you can't make it to every meeting, that's OK! Join us at our service projects, business networking and other scheduled get-togethers.
We engage the community by inviting you through Meetup to our events, and encourage like-minded people to consider joining the club. The events on this page are your first step to getting engaged. Learn more about our Rotary club by attending an event, or reaching out to an organizer.
