  rotary projects:  how do they start?

Great Rotary projects happen when a Rotarian sees a problem, and decides something should be done to solve that problem.  That Rotarian then shares the problem with their fellow Rotary club members, and by brainstorming together, they create a solution and create a club service project!    
Rotary clubs tackle projects of every scale and inspire fellow Rotarians, friends, neighbors, and partners to share their vision, exchange ideas for lasting solutions, and take action to bring those ideas to life.  If this rings true for you, we want you to join us!

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion:  We're creating an organization that is more open and inclusive, fair to all, builds goodwill, and benefits our communities. Rotary values diversity and celebrates the contributions of people of all backgrounds, regardless of their age, ethnicity, race, color, abilities, religion, socioeconomic status, culture, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity.

Becoming a Rotary member connects you with a diverse group of professionals, community leaders and people who share your drive to give back. Through regular meetings, socials, service projects and events, you’ll:

- Discuss your community’s needs and develop creative ways to meet them
- Involve your friends & family members by bringing them to club meetings, service projects, social events, and activities!
- Connect with other leaders who are changing the world
- Expand your leadership and professional skills
- Catch up with good friends and meet new ones
