• Give Back to Your Community
    and Make Lifelong Friends

    Want to make a difference - give back to the community - and meet some great people while doing so? We're the most fun Rotary Club in Columbia - small enough to get acquainted and big enough to get things done!


    What would it take to change the world? Rotary's 1.2 million members believe it starts with a commitment to Service Above Self.


    In more than 34,000 clubs worldwide, you'll find members volunteering in communities at home and abroad to support education and job training, provide clean water, combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, and eradicate polio.


    The very best way to learn more about Rotary is by talking to an existing member or our Membership Chair, Tim Carson.

    Our Facebook page is another great way to see what we're up to.

  • Activities

    If you're looking for a friendly and active Rotary club, you're in the right place.

    Service Projects

    Wide Variety of Monthly Service Projects

    Cooking a Thanksgiving meal for homeless veterans and Christmas cookies for Meals on Wheels. Building a greenhouse for an elementary school and a playground for residents of a women's addiction recovery facility. Planting trees and weeding gardens for community associations. Members participate in many service projects here in Columbia, and support service projects around the world!


    Enjoying Each Other's Company

    We enjoy getting together through monthly 501 Socials (so-called because they start after work, at 5:01 PM) and fun events such as a Christmas party and cornhole tournament.
