What is Rotary?
Rotary connects passionate people with diverse perspectives to exchange ideas, forge lifelong friendships, and, above all, take action to change the world.
Rotary Clubs participate in a broad range of educational, inter-cultural, and humanitarian activities designed to improve the lives of others in need.
Rotary Clubs are non-religious, non-political and open to every race, culture, and creed. Members represent a cross section of local business, professional, and community leaders.
