Join us at a fun, informal and informative meeting. We meet every Tuesday morning for coffee, an interesting speaker and to help engage ourselves in our local and international communities. It cost nothing to attend a meeting, and you'll leave enriched. 

 

Our local initiatives include youth-oriented projects such as mentoring, providing school supplies and winter outerwear to kids in need, and high school youth exchange. We also make monthly donations to local charities, as selected by the club.

Internationally, we support entrepreneurs, sponsor scholars, and help with Rotary International initiatives such as polio eradication (Polio Plus) and its emergency shelter program (Shelterbox).

The doors open at 7:15 a.m., meetings start at 7:30 sharp and end promptly at 8:30, so you're on your way to work with fresh perspectives and new knowledge.
