Are you an established professional who wants to make positive changes in your community and the world?  Our Club members are awesome!
 
Our 1.2 million-member organization started with the vision of one man - Paul P. Harris.  The Chicago attorney formed one of the world's first service organizations, the Rotary Club of Chicago, on February 23, 1905 as a place where professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships.  Rotary's name came from the group's early practice of rotating meetings among the offices of each member.
 
You are invited to visit us at an upcoming meeting - we meet Friday mornings at 7 a.m. at Frankie's Pizza in New Hope. 
Our Club participated in the Robbinsdale Meet & Greet on September 18:

  • PRISM
  • Tree House
  • New Hope YMCA
  • Robins Adapted Athletics
