The Latest from Rochester Rotary
 
Welcome to the Rotary Club of Rochester Michigan. Rotary is a worldwide organization of business and professional persons with common goals and interests to provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. Because of Rotary International leadership and initiative, Polio has virtually been eradicated around the globe. This year, in addition to continuing its battle against Polio, Rotary International has adopted six areas of focus:
  1. Promoting Peace
  2. Fighting Disease
  3. Providing Clean Water
  4. Saving Mothers and Children
  5. Supporting Education
  6. Growing Local Economies
This is admittedly a full plate of expectations, but true diligence and determination will succeed and once again Rotary will be there. Each year, through our local programs, Rochester Rotary members help hundreds of young people develop the scholarship and leadership skills they need to be successful in the world. From programs like Interact, RYLA, and Retract, our members engage on a personal level, passing along their commitment to the community and the next generation.  While service is the heart of our club, we also offer great weekly programs for our members. We meet each Tuesday at noon at the River Crest Banquet Center (900 West Avon Road, Rochester Hills, MI 48307) for lunches, great speakers and a chance to visit and enjoy our fellow Rotarian friends. If you are a visiting Rotarian, please come see us and enjoy the food and fellowship. I am excited and honored to be serving as President of the Rochester Rotary Club 2019-2020.

Our 2019 Masters Golf Ticket Raffle was an incredible success, exceeding the results of 2018! 255 tickets were sold out of a maximum of 300 and the effort raised $10,200 for our club's charity efforts.
The 2018 Rochester Rotary Charity Golf Outing was a smashing success.  We had over 60 golfers play the Old Course at Indianwood Country Club on a gorgeous September morning.

Rotary Gateway Park
 
The Rotary Gateway Park is a hidden gem in downtown Rochester. Built by the Rochester Rotary Club in 1997, the park features beautiful flower beds, a cascading water feature, and benches to sit and enjoy a few quiet moments. The Rochester Rotary Club continues upgrade and enhance the park through the volunteer efforts of club members and funding from the purchase of memorial bricks.
